Ibadan, the Oyo state capital today recorded its first rain of the year.
Our Correspondent reports that the rain, which fell heavily in Podo, Odo Ona-Kekere and the environs started at about three o’clock in the afternoon.
A cross-section of residents in the area expressed joy over the rain, which they described as a relief from the hot weather currently being experienced.
The residents, who prayed for more rain soonest, condemned the services of IBEDC in the area, saying home appliances like fans, air conditioners, fridges, and freezers that could have cushioned the effects of the heat
They pointed out that the use of fridges and freezers for food preservation had become useless due to near zero per cent power supply.
Further investigation by our correspondent on the first rain revealed that, while other areas felt the cool breeze effect of the rain, it merely dropped or scattered in some areas within the state capital.
