Lagos Residents To Experience 40-Hour Blackout

Eko Electricity Distribution Company has announced a planned power outage programme that will affect SOME residents of the Lagos metropolis. 

The company’s General Manager, Corporate Communications, Mr. Godwin Idemudia, said in a statement on Tuesday that the planned outage was to enable the Transmission Company of Nigeria to carry out routine maintenance work on some of its facilities serving the area.

According to the statement, the outage is scheduled to take place every Tuesday and Thursday for the next five weeks, and will last for four hours on each day of the maintenance work. It said Lagos Island, Victoria Island, Ikoyi, Lekki, Ajah, Ibeju and environs would be affected by the planned outage.

According to NAN, Idemudia stated that in order to minimise the effect of the planned outage on the company’s customers, back-feeding arrangements had been put in place from the Ijora Transmission Station to the Alagbon Transmission Station. He said this would enable customers in Ikoyi, Victoria Island and Lagos Island to receive reasonable power supply.

The firm appealed to all residents who would be affected by the planned outage to bear with the situation, adding that the maintenance work would lead to better services in the future.
