The Eko Electricity Distribution Company (EKEDC) has begged its customers in Lagos and Ogun states over irregular power supply they were currently experiencing. 

Mr Godwin Idemudia, the General Manager, Corporate Communication department, EKEDC, conveyed the apology in a statement in Lagos. 

He explained that the irregular power supply being experienced was due to reduced load capacity from the national grid. 

He said the outage affected some customers in some parts of Badagry and Ogun State under Agbara District of the company. 

He promised that the residents that normalcy would be restored to the affected communities as soon as the capacity was increased. 

He added: “What we are presently getting from the Grid is not enough to meet the demand of our customers. At the same time, this is to notify our esteemed customers in Lagos Island of an impending maintenance work scheduled for Sunday, Jan.22, between 9am -1pm. 

“This maintenance work will require Fowler injection substation to be temporarily shut down. So, Ikoyi and environs under Island District, will be out of supply during the period of the outage. 

“We are therefore appealing to customers to bear with us.EKEDC highly regrets any inconveniences caused by this irregular supply” 

He also implored the company’s customers to be vigilant at this crucial time to prevent hoodlums from vandalizing their cables.
