Parts of Abuja, Nigeria’s capital city, will experience a seven-hour blackout on Saturday and Sunday, the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN), has said.

TCN, in a statement by its General Manager, Public Affairs, Ndidi Mbah, on Saturday, said there would be a planned routine maintenance on its 132/33kV 2X100MVA power Transformers in Apo Transmission Substation.

Mbah listed the areas that would experience power interruption as Garki, Asokoro, Lugbe, Airport Road, Gudu, Gaduwa, parts of Lokogoma, Apo, Kabusa, Guzape and Nepa Junction.

The maintenance, according to the statement, is slated from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm each day.

She noted that the power supply would be restored on both days by 4 pm.

“The Transmission Company of Nigeria wishes to inform the public that its maintenance crew will carry out planned preventive maintenance on its 132/33kV 2X100MVA power Transformers in Apo Transmission Substation.

“Consequently, there will be power interruption through both transformers and Abuja DisCo will be unable to offtake power from the two transformers for distribution to its customers.

“TCN regrets the inconvenience this may cause electricity consumers in the affected areas,” the statement read in part.
