The Abuja Electricity Distribution, Company (AEDC) and its counterpart, the Yola Electricity Distribution Company (YEDC), are currently on zero allocation from the National Grid, following collapse of the national grid as at 5 a.m. on Thursday.
ADEC General Manager Corporate Communication, Mr Oyebode Fadipe, made this known in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) Thursday in Abuja.
Fadipe said the collapse of the national grid interrupted power supply to its franchise areas of Kogi, Nasarawa, Niger and the Federal Capita territory (FCT).
”We hope that the situation would improve in the coming hours, given the efforts by officials of Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) to restore normalcy at the grid,” he said.
In the same vein, the YEDC via its verified Facebook page announced receiving zero allocation Thursday morning.
The company supplies electricity to Adamawa, Taraba, Yobe and Borno States.
The statement noted that power will be restored to it’s customers as soon as normalcy is restored.
Meanwhile, TCN has confirmed collapse of the national grid. The General Manager, Public Affairs, TCN , Mrs Ndidi Mbah, told NAN that details of the collapse would be communicated later.
NAN reports that the national grid recorded two major collapses in April.
