The Abuja Electricity Distribution Company (AEDC), has reacted to a viral message warning people to switch off their appliances because of high voltage expected from the company today, Monday 9 April.
According to the message, there will be high voltage on Monday and that customers are advised to switch off their appliances.
Etim said that the message was false.
The message states “A PIECE OF ADVICE FROM NEPA, (Power Holden Company)*
”You and the entire Public are humbly advised to turn off all appliances in your home because there is hope for power supply new week starting from May 9, 2022.
”The initial power supply will be coming with high voltage because most industries have switched to their Generating Power supply.
“The first power Supply will or may come with damaging effect. Please, save your Electronic Gadgets and appliances.”
But AEDC’S Chief Marketing Officer, Mr Donald Etim in a statement in Abuja on Sunday described the claim in the viral message as false.
He has assured customers AEDC’s ability and technical competence to provide safe and stable electricity supply.
Etim added that AEDC would continue to provide safe and stable electricity supply to customers in their homes and offices.
