Some Lagos residents to experience four-hour outage today


The Transmission Company of Nigeria has announced that it will carry out an annual maintenance of its equipment at the Itire 132KV Transmission Sub-station in Lagos today (Tuesday) for four hours.

The TCN said in a statement that there would be disruption of 34 megawatts of electricity supply to customers in Ago, Okota, Ilasamaja, Ijesha, Itire and their environs.

It said the planned outage would enable its engineers from the Akangba Sub-regional Office in Surulere to carry out routine maintenance work on all the equipment in the Itire Transmission Sub-station and the 132KV insulated indoor switch yard for improved electricity supply to customers in the areas.

The General Manager, Public Affairs, TCN, Ndidi Mbah, said, “The TCN, therefore, appeals to customers that take supply from distribution load centres covering the areas mentioned above to bear with us for four hours on Tuesday, March 27, as they will experience temporary outage on that day.

“The TCN hereby apologises for inconveniences that may result from the temporary disruption of supply to them and noted that routine maintenance is necessary for the station to maintain transmission capacity. The TCN promises to continue upgrading and maintaining her equipment to serve Nigerians better in line with the Federal Government’s strategy on incremental power to the citizenry.”
