The Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) has restored bulk power supply to Birinin Kebbi and environs.

Mr Ndidi Mbah, the General Manager, Public Affairs, TCN, said this in a statement in Birnin Kebbi.

“Power supply was restored today Sept. 29 at around 9:20am. Our team worked round the clock to restore supply to the 150MVA and 60MVA transformers which were fortunately unaffected by the fire incident.

“Recall the commitment of our MD/CEO, Engr. Sule Abdulazeez, who pledged to ensure restoration of bulk power supply within two weeks of the occurrence of the unfortunate incident,” he said.

Mbah said that although bulk power supply was restored to Sokoto through the Kaduna-Zaria-Funtua-Gusau-Talatan Mafara 132KV line on Sept. 15, the TCN engineers worked assiduously to extend the restoration to Kebbi state and its environs.

“Our team of engineers are also working tirelessly to extend the exercise to our 132KV Birinin Kebbi-Sokoto line in order to carry additional load.

“New cables were brought in and connected to the existing transformers, and reinforcement teams from other TCN regions were sent to help the ones on the ground to expedite the reconnection work.

“It is with a great sense of responsibility that we once again express our deepest appreciation to electricity customers in Kebbi State and environs for their understanding and patience in the face of the current unpleasant experience,” he said.

Mbah also appreciated all stakeholders for their understanding, sympathy, support and prayers throughout the challenging period.

Kebbi and its environs had been in total darkness for two weeks following a fire outbreak that engulfed two transformers at TCN substation in Birnin Kebbi on Sept. 14. (NAN)
