Omishakin, a community in Lagos State said to have been without electricity for over 13 years will be the focus of the third episode of award winning television programme, ‘Airtel Touching Lives’ scheduled to air on Sunday, the 16th of February on national and cable TV.
The community had due to lack of electricity, in recent times, experienced multiple security problems as hoodlums swarmed the environs in the dark, putting lives and property at constant risk.
Commercial water boreholes operated by individual members of the community also failed as the owners could not afford the resources to fuel generating sets, resulting in untold hardship as the community members had to walk long distances to fetch potable water.
The upcoming episode will show members of the community as they narrate how the issue of electricity has been a major setback on their businesses and livelihood.
Episode two of Airtel Touching Lives followed the story of Cole Evans, a 28-year-old fitness trainer who had lost all hope following a tragic accident that killed five people on the scene.
Cole was unable to pass urine as the accident left his urinary tract damaged and also fractured his pelvis. He also had to endure the trauma of the incident and soon fell into severe depression.
The episode showed Cole’s journey through recovery after Airtel intervened by supporting him with N8, 000,000 (Eight Million Naira) for a corrective surgery in the United Kingdom.
You can follow Airtel Touching Lives this Sunday by tuning in to Africa Magic Urban by 6:30pm; Africa Magic Family by 6:30pm; Ebonylife TV by 7pm; NTA Network by 6:00pm & Farin Wata by 6:30pm to enjoy the programme every Sunday.
