AEDC to disrupt power in Abuja as TCN maintains substation

The Abuja Electricity Distribution Company (AEDC) has announced a seven-hour power supply disruption on Saturday over the maintenance of the Apo transmission substation in Abuja.

In a statement, the DisCo also said the current low supply of electricity to users is due to low output from the Generation Companies (GenCos) just as parties are working to quickly restore stable supply.

However, on Saturday, AEDC said the power supply will be disrupted from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm around 12 communities services by the Apo transmission substation.

The affected areas are Lokogoma, Apo Mechanic Village, Apo Resettlement, Waru Village, Gudu, Gaduwa Estate, Trademore Estate, Apo Legislative Quarters, Behind Transmission Substation, Efab Galaxy Estate, Efab Sunshine Estate, CedaCrest Hospital and environs.

“The purpose of the interruption is to enable the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN), to carry out a maintenance exercise on the 100MVA transformer 4 (TR4) at the Apo transmission substation.

“We sincerely regret the inconvenience that the outage will cause our customers and assure them of improved quality of power supply,” said the AEDC management.
