Power distribution has been completely halted throughout the South-East states.
This is in response to the National Union of Electricity Employees’ (NUEE) strike at Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) power stations.
The development caused a total blackout in the five South-East states on Wednesday afternoon.
Emeka Ezeh, Head of Corporate Communications, EEDC, confirmed to DAILY POST that operations at the Enugu Electricity Distribution Company PLC (EEDC) franchise area have been disrupted.
He said, “as a result of this development all our feeders are out of supply and this has affected supply to our esteemed customers in Abia, Anambra, Ebonyi, Enugu and Imo States.
“Consultations are ongoing among critical stakeholders in the power sector to address this issue and possibly restore supply.
“The Management of EEDC hereby encourage customers and neighbourhood associations to be vigilant and protect the electrical installations within their environment against elements who might take advantage of this outage to vandalise these installations.”
“We, therefore, appeal for continued patience and understanding while this is resolved,” he noted.Click here to give us five stars rating!
