Enugu Electricity Distribution Company (EEDC) has explained that the loss of supply currently experienced in parts of Enugu and Anambra States was due to fault on 132KV transmission line radiating from Onitsha.

EEDC’s Head Communication, Mr Chukwuemeka Ezeh, said this in a statement issued on Tuesday in Enugu.

Ezeh noted that as a result of this development, EEDC customers within Awka and Ekwulobia districts in Anambra State had been out of supply.

He said that the challenge also affected the company’s customers in Oji River, Achi, Inyi, Awlaw, Ugwuoba, Akpugo Eze and parts of Nsukka town in Enugu State.

“EEDC is, however, appealing for our esteemed customers’ patience and understanding.

“The Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) crew is already working to ensure the fault is cleared and supply restored to the affected areas as well as ensure improved supply in the mentioned areas,’’ he said.

Ezeh also said that as part of its commitment in ensuring that customers enjoy quality power supply, the EEDC recently installed a brand new 15MVA Power Transformer at its Nibo Injection Sub-station in Awka, Anambra State.

He said that the company made a huge investment in the procurement of the transformer as a replacement to the faulty one serving the customers.

“By this development, customers that are served by Awka main and Udoka 11KV Feeders will begin to enjoy improved power supply.

“This gesture goes to express our readiness to serve our customers despite the prevailing economic challenges.

“We, therefore, expect our customers to reciprocate by paying their electricity bills,’’ he added.
