Dr Elijah clarified that the scheduled power outage, orchestrated by the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN), is imperative to facilitate the safe installation activities undertaken by the Local Engineering, Procurement, and Construction (EPC) contractors affiliated with TCN.

He elaborated, “The primary intention behind TCN’s planned outage is to ensure the secure connection of the gantry beam for the new APO line to the existing Lafia line-Jos 330kv double circuit.”

During this period, there will be a heightened load shedding due to the 330KV Jos complex remaining powered through the Kaduna-Jos 330KV line, as specified by Dr. Elijah.
