Abuja DisCo Announces Power Interruption In Asokoro, Gwarinpa, Garki, others
The Abuja Electricity Distribution Company (AEDC) says customers in some parts of federal capital territory (FCT) will experience interruption in power supply.
In a statement on Thursday, the electricity distribution company (DisCo) said the interruption is caused by a drop in power generation.
The company said the drop in generation prompted a massive load shedding of some locations within its franchise.
However, it did not state the duration of the power interruption.
The affected areas are Gwarinpa, Gishiri, Jabi, Utako, Jahi, Wuye, Dawaki, Katampe, Kaduna road, Jiwa, Suleja Town, parts of Lifecamp, Kado, Wuse zone 1 to 7, parts of Central Area, and Garki.
Others are Asokoro, Lokogoma, Apo resettlement, Apo mechanic village, Shoprite, Obasanjo space centre, National Biotechnology, FHA Lugbe, and Mararaba and environs.
The AEDC assured customers that power supply will be restored as generation improves.
“While we apologise for the inconvenience this will bring to customers in the affected areas, we promise that as generation improves, the power supply to the affected areas will be restored,” the statement reads.
“It is very important to add that the bulk of the interruptions our customers have experienced in the last few days has been as a result of low generation.
“We do hope that in the coming days, more power will be available at the grid to enable us serve our customers.”
