Mary Ugwuanyi

The electricity distribution companies, DisCos, in the country have warned that customers will experience a reduction in power supply for an indefinite period.

This was disclosed in separate statements issued on Saturday by Abuja, Kano, and Ikeja electricity distribution companies (KEDCO, AEDC, and IKEDC).

The DisCos said the shortage of electricity supply is as a result of “insufficient load allocation received”.

IKEDC said, “We apologise for the current poor power supply you have been experiencing in certain parts of our network lately. This is due to the inadequate allocation received, hence the load shedding.

“We regret the inconvenience this has caused and wish to assure that we are engaging the responsible stakeholders in the electricity value chain to improve the situation.”

KEDCO also said the load allocation had constantly reduced, and therefore, became inadequate to supply all customers.

It said, “This is to kindly inform our esteemed customers that the low power supply currently being experienced across our franchise is due to low power generation nationwide.

“Consequently, the load allocation to KEDCO has drastically reduced and is barely adequate to supply all our customers sufficiently, thus the massive load shedding.

“We reassure our esteemed customers of our uninhibited commitment to providing quality electricity supply as soon as generation and allocation from Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) improves.

“We sincerely apologise for all inconveniences resulting from this regrettable development.”
