Kaduna Electric has alerted customers about the planned outage by the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) as it continues the re-expansion of the 132 kilovolts (kV) Birnin Kebbi to Sokoto state transmission line.
TCN in a statement also notified the public about the expansion works which it said will boost the national power grid and improve power supply quality to the state and its environs.
A statement by the Head Corporate Communication, Abdulazeez Abdullahi, said the project began last Tuesday and will last till the end of February 2021, during which there would be interruption of power supply to Sokoto from 8:00 am to 5:00pm daily.
“This would enable the company to increase bulk power transmission to Kaduna Electric for onward distribution to the State,” it said.
The re-conductoring work would also rectify the low voltage and consequent poor power situation and enable customers to enjoy more stable and quality power supply, it noted.
“We sincerely apologise for the inconveniences this would cause our valued customers while assuring that electricity supply would be restored daily from 6pm to 8am.”
