Eko Disco gives reason for erratic power supply

The management of the Eko Electricity Distribution Company (EKEDC) on Sunday apologised to its consumers over the irregular power supply, The Nation reports.

The General Manager Corporate Communications, Mr Godwin Idemudia, said the current epileptic power supply was due to last week’s system collapse on the national grid. Idemudia said that the system collapse resulted in a nationwide blackout. The General Manager said for the past five days, power supply to electricity consumers under Eko Disco has been epileptic.

“Until generation goes up, there is nothing we can do now because the national grid is the only source of our supply. EKEDC highly regrets any inconveniences caused by this irregular supply,” he said. Nigeria on Jan.2 was thrown into a nationwide blackout as the country suffered a total collapse of its power grid due to a fire incident on the Escravos Lagos Pipeline System, which supplies gas to plants generating 3,182 Mega Watts (MW) of power.
