Ondo and Ekiti electricity consumers, last week expressed concern over the devastating impact of the planned two-month power outage to be witnessed in the two states.

A notice by the Transmission Company of Nigeria showed plans by the firm to execute critical maintenance work on the 132kV Akure Osogbo transmission line.

According to a public notice released by the Benin Electricity Distribution Company, the upgrade will disrupt power supply to Ondo and Ekiti states for two months.

It indicated that the affected states would experience power outages that would last nine hours daily, starting from Monday, July 1 to August 31.

“Please be informed that the Transmission Company of Nigeria is scheduled to carry out critical maintenance work on the 132kV Akure Osogbo transmission line. The planned work involves the installation of Optical Ground Wire and other activities. This will require an outage on the affected network for safe working space.

“Customers in the affected areas will experience service interruptions during the period of the planned outages. We sincerely apologise for the inconvenience this may cause and kindly solicit your patience and understanding,” the notice on the planned maintenance read.
