You know the situation of power in Nigeria. We have been struggling for decades to provide uninterrupted power supply. Heya! We will get there someday. Consequently, we are well familiar with the frustrations we feel when the power goes out, especially at precarious times of the day. The curses we rain, the screams we shout, among others. But, if your parents or relatives work with the Power Holding Company of Nigeria (PHCN), here are 6 things you can definitely relate with:
NB: NEPA no longer exists. They have metamorphosed into different Discos after it was sold. Regardless, we will not stop referring to them as NEPA until Nigerians stop shouting Up NEPA!
You cannot tell your friends that your parents work with NEPA
As in it is difficult to tell your friends that your parents work with NEPA. This is because of the stigma that follows telling them, as you will be the joke of the day.
When they ‘take‘ and ‘bring light‘ every minute and you cannot say anything because your parents work with NEPA
Abi you want to swear for your parents? You dare not!!!
When your friends reign curses on NEPA and you quietly reject it on behalf of your parents
The curses Nigerians hurl at NEPA is enough for power not to be available in the country. For you, you quietly reject the curses on your parent’s’ behalf.
Your reaction when Nepa restores Power
When they are cutting ‘light’ (power cables) and they don’t come to your house
My parents work with NEPA!!! ntoin!!!
When there is no power for more than two weeks, and you ask your father why…
