EEDC announces system collapse in South-East


EEDC announces system collapse in South-East

For the second time in just two weeks, the South-Eastern part of Nigeria is facing a complete lack of electricity.

This happened because the Enugu Electricity Distribution Company couldn’t keep its operations going.

In a press statement titled ‘Notice Of Total System Collapse,’ Mr. Emeka Ezeh, the Head of Corporate Communications of EEDC, revealed that the incident occurred at approximately 12:40 a.m. on Thursday.

Ezeh’s statement read: “The Enugu Electricity Distribution Company PLC wishes to inform her esteemed customers of a total system collapse which occurred at 12:40 am today, 14th September 2023. This has resulted in the loss of supply currently being experienced across the network.”

The dire situation has left EEDC unable to provide service to its customers in Abia, Anambra, Ebonyi, Enugu, and Imo States, as all their interface stations with the Transmission Company of Nigeria have been deprived of power.

EEDC is now eagerly awaiting detailed information regarding the collapse and the restoration of supply from the National Control Centre in Osogbo.

It’s worth noting that the Enugu Electricity Distribution Company faced similar system collapses in the South-East region last year, which significantly affected power supply in its franchise areas within the zone.
