The management of Kano electricity Distribution Company has explained that the reason for the shortage of power supply to its franchise area recently is as a result of loss of one 150MVA transformer at Kumbotoso Transmission Station in Kano.
In a statement issued by the firm’s Head of Corporate Communications Sani Bala Sani, it stated that, the 150MVA transformer developed fault at exactly 0530hrs on 1st January 2019 and since then Transmission Company of Nigeria’s (TCN) crew have been working to fix the fault.
Originally, the spoilt 150MVA transformer supplied the entire Hadejia, Daura, Kankia and environs, part of Katsina and Dakata in Kano. Albeit temporary measures have been employed to supply these areas on a rationing basis, supply has drastically reduced; Sani added.
