Eko Disco blames drop in power generation for outage

In response to constant power outages currently being experienced in Nigeria’s commercial capital, Eko Electricity Distribution Company (EKEDC) has attributed the outage currently being experienced by customers under their networks to a drop in power generation.

“A drop in load allocation has led to massive load shedding across our network which has resulted in poor power supply. We are currently working with our TCN partners on a swift and sustainable resolution,” Eko Disco said in a message to its customers on Wednesday.

However, a printer, Yakuba Aigbona, said the power situation in Coker area of Surulere had been very poor.

“It is unfortunate that I have to rely on a generator for running my business and with the high cost of diesel, things have not been easy.

“I am begging EKEDC to come to our rescue by finding a lasting solution to this problem because even when others have light, we don’t normally have which is very frustrating,” Aigbona said.

Another businessman, Michael Ajakaiye told NAN that he was paying about N40,000 bill monthly for his three-bedroom office without enjoying regular supply.

“My office is at Lagos Island and I can tell you categorically that the supply has dropped in recent weeks and we have been relying on generators to run our operations,” he said.
