Community forfeits free transformer over youths’ demand for ‘settlement’

A member of the House of Representatives, Akin Alabi has revealed how  a community forfeited an electricity transformer over  demand by the youths of the community  to be “settled” before the transformer could be delivered.

Alabi, who is representing Egbeda/Ona Ara Federal constituency of Oyo State in the House of Representatives while sharing his experience on Twitter said he instructed that the transformer be taken to another community in the constituency which also requested for it.

I bought a transformer for a community that requested for it in my constituency. When the delivery people got there, the “youths” there said they must “settle” boys before they drop it. They called me and I told them to take it to another community that asked as well. Their loss, ” he tweeted.


Was his action justifiable?

Following his tweet, some Twitter users also shared their encounters with people over the act of demanding before getting things of public interest done.
