Blackout: Nigerians slam Eko, Ikeja DisCos

The management of Ibadan Electricity Distribution Company (IBEDC) said that the states under its franchise will experience prolonged power outages due to low weekly power allocation to its network by Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN).

This was contained in a statement issued by IBEDC’s Senior Communication Officer, Kikelomo Owoeye, on Sunday in Osogbo.

It said that Ogun, Oyo, Ibadan, Osun, and Kwara region would be affected by the power outage.

According to the statement, the weekly power allocation to the IBEDC network by TCN had dropped from 692.5 megawatts to 368.5 megawatts.

“This has led to massive load shedding across our franchise in Ogun, Oyo, Ibadan, Osun and Kwara region.

“Kindly bear with us, as we work with stakeholders in the electricity value chain on sustainable resolution,” IBEDC said.
