EKO Electricity Distribution Company, EEDC, has announced planned power outage programme that will affect some residents of Lagos metropolis for five weeks.
Godwin Idemudia, general manager, Corporate Communications, Eko Disco, said the planned outage was to enable Transmission Company of Nigeria, TCN, to carry out routine maintenance work on some its vital facilities servicing the area.
Idemudia, in a statement, said the planned outage which is scheduled to take place every Tuesday and Thursday for the next five weeks will last for four hours on each day of the maintenance work. He listed areas to be affected by the planned power outage to include Lagos Island, Victoria Island, Ikoyi, Lekki, Ajah, Ibeju and their environs.
The release further added that in order to minimise the effect of the planned outage on the company’s customers, back-feeding arrangements have been put in place from Ijora Transmission station to Alagbon Transmission Station. According to him, this will enable customers in Ikoyi, Victoria Island and Lagos Island to receive reasonable power supply.
He appealed to all residents that would be affected by the planned outage to please bear with the situation, adding that the maintenance work would lead to better services to all customers.
