Abuja Electricity Distribution Company (AEDC) has said that due to some technical challenges from the TCN, it is unable to provide electricity to its customers living between Karu and the Nasarawa State capital, Lafia.
The General Manager, Corporate Communications, AEDC, Oyebode Fadipe in a statement said, this occured since the evening hours of 13/03/2021.
TheFact Nigeria gathered that power supply around the areas has been erratic throughout the last week.
Meanwhile, AEDC said, “the 132kV line from Apo Transmission Station to Akwanga Transmission Station which also serves Karu Transmission Station, Keffi Transmission Station and Akwanga Transmission Station had been opened and restored later during night hours.
“However, upon restoration, the affected transmission stations have remained on station service only up to this moment due to some technical challenges.
“Our colleagues in TCN are working round the clock to resolve this. We are optimistic that they will do everything within their capability to ensure early restoration of the lines.
“As a result of this, AEDC customers in Karu, Nyanya, Jikwoyi, Karshi, Mararaba, Keffi, Akwanga, Lafia and environs are currently unable to have access to electric power for their socio-economic activities.
“While we sincerely apologise to the affected customers, please be informed that the TCN maintenance crew is already at work to ensure that the challenges are speedily dealt with,” the statement said.
