Eko Electricity Distribution Company (EKEDC) has given reason for the power outage being experienced in some areas within the company’s operational territory since Sunday, March 13, 2016.
A statement by Mr. Godwin Idemudia, the company’s Head of Corporate Communications, in Lagos, attributed the outage to a line trip from Egbin Power Station.
He said the line trip had made it impossible for customers being serviced from Ajah, Lekki and Alagbon transmission injection sub-stations to receive power supply.
Areas listed to have been affected by the outage include Lagos Island, Ikoyi, Victoria Island Lekki, Ajah, Ibeju and their environs.
The statement further stated that concerted efforts were being made by generation and transmission technical personnel to repair the fault and restore supply in record time.
Idemudia appealed to customers to bear with the company, adding that supply to all affected areas would be restored as soon as the fault is cleared.
The Eko Disco Spokesman also assured that the company’s distribution facilities are in good shape for effective evacuation of power to customers as soon as the line fault between generation and transmission stations is fixed.
