The Enugu Electricity Distribution Company (EEDC) has announced the gradual restoration of electricity supply after the total system collapse in the South-East.
EEDC spokesman Emeka Ezeh announced this in a statement on Thursday.
Mr Ezeh said the company’s Awada transmission station had been restored, and “our Awada, Osamala, 3-3, Army Barracks, Nnewi-Orba, and Obosi 33KV feeders and the PPI and IUNT 11KV outgoing feeders had received supply so far in Anambra.”
“Ugwuaji transmission station has equally received supply and Gariki 33KV feeder was restored so far. New-Haven Transmission Station has received supply and Kingsway 33KV Line 1 and Power-House 11KV outgoing feeder have been restored so far,” EEDC explained. “Agu-Awka Transmission Station received supply but is presently placed on station services only. Kindly note that restoration after system collapse is gradual to avoid further collapse or challenges.”
The EEDC stated that power restoration was ongoing even as “we appeal to our customers in locations that are yet to be restored to be patient as all hands are on deck.”
The statement added, “EEDC remains committed to delivering improved services to her esteemed customers.”
Electricity system collapse was reported at about 12:30 a.m. on Thursday, leaving the entire South-East in total darkness.
