Power outage in Lokoja town

When the Geregu 1 and 2 plants were to be installed, the government promised to ensure the availability of constant power supply to the entire Kogi State and the Federal Capital Territory of Abuja. It was made clear to the people of Lokoja that a step-down of one of the transformers would be installed at Zango town near Lokoja to serve the people of Lokoja and its environs, but all this has been in vain. The Geregu power plant has been serving the entire Abuja without any input to serve Lokoja and this power plant passes through Lokoja town.
The entire town now only enjoys four hours of electricity and eight hours without it. This has affected the town at this time of excessive heat.
We want to call on the Ministry of Power to consider the installation of another transformer that would provide power from that of Geregu power plant to enable the people of Lokoja enjoy uninterrupted power supply.
Bala Nayashi,  No. 1 Yashi Areas, Lokoja.
