Some communities in Abuja under the network of the Abuja Electricity Distribution Company (AEDC), are presently experiencing power outages due to a drop in load allocated to the power company.
The AEDC’s management in a notice issued on Tuesday, made this disclosure.
The DisCo complained that the outages currently being suffered by some communities within its coverage were caused by inadequate supply of power to its network from the national grid.
“Compliments of the season. We have noticed a drop in the load allocated to us in the national grid thus leading to interruption of power supply to our customers in Lugbe, Lugbe Across, Lugbe Zones 1-9, Sabo Lugbe, Trade Moore axis, Alaita, Chika, ACO, ASO, AMAC Estates, VOA, Deidei, Jiwa, Zuba, Anagada, Kaduna Road, Gwagwa, etc,” the statement reads in part.
The DisCo appealed to its customers in the affected areas to abide by safety rules and guidelines at home and on the road, to prevent damages on power equipment and facilities.
It further encouraged them to make do with the limited amount of electricity presently being distributed to their communities in the meantime.
“While we urge our customers to remain calm and manage the supply available to them, it is important to be safety conscious at home and while driving on the roads in order to avoid damage to any electrical apparatus. Thank you,” the management stated.
