LAGOS – Some football lovers based in Ikorodu, Lagos State on Sunday appealed to the Ikeja Electricity Distribution Company to ensure constant power supply of electricity during 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil.
The 2014 FIFA World Cup is the 20th edition of the Mundial.
“We do know that the crime rate usually drops during the World Cup because almost everybody is busy watching the matches.
A student of Lagos State Polytechnic, Ikorodu, John Ayomide, said that many football fans would not want to watch the matches in hotels, viewing centres or at bars.
“We will like to enjoy the matches in the comfort of our homes,’’ he said.
Another student of the polytechnic, Femi Olubiyi, said that Nigeria would do well in this edition of the FIFA World Cup.
“Our hopes are high. We will be praying for our boys to possibly win this cup.
A banker, Ayo Akintobi, said that “everything should be in place to ensure that Nigerians do not have to spend so much to generate their own electricity.
“The authorities in charge of supply of power to Ikorodu should be alert to their duties during this event,’’ he said. (NAN)
