The world will either move forward towards unity and widely shared prosperity or it will move apart”. The saying has always proved to be right as whenever there has been any flinch in unity, the world has observed a lot of terror and instability.

After the introduction of the AEDC representatives, the spokesperson talked about some usual and unusual situations. He said, 20% of the power outage is due to the interception of trees and power-lines.

When trees intercept power lines it makes electricity to flow from the power line to the ground and then the power goes off due to proper grounding in other to save peoples’ life.

f their’s no power outage at that moment the tree will have some current and then electrocutes. Sometimes when the tree becomes dry it catches fire due to the current flowing through it. However, the people are advised to take proper precautions and be extra careful.
