EEDC Blames Power Supply Disruption in South East to Strike Action by Electricity Workers



The Enugu Electricity Distribution Company PLC (EEDC) says its power distribution operation across the south east has been disrupted by the industrial strike action embarked upon by the National Union of Electricity Employees (NUEE) at the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) power stations.

An official statement signed by the EEDC’S Head of Communications, Mr Emeka Ezeh, disclosed that the industrial action would prevent normal supply across its network area.

The statement read: “As a result of this development all our feeders are out of supply and this has affected supply to our esteemed customers in Abia, Anambra, Ebonyi, Enugu and Imo States.

“Consultations are ongoing among critical stakeholders in the power sector to address this issue and possibly restore supply.

According to Ezeh, the management of EEDC appealed to customers and neighbourhood associations to be “vigilant and protect the electrical installations within their environment against elements who might take advantage of this outage to vandalise these installations.”

“We therefore appeal for continued patience and understanding while this is resolved”, he adds.
