  • Going by Mr. Idemudia's words, electricity for consumers under the EKEDC is not expected to blink during the holiday.

Lagos residents under the Eko Electricity Distribution Company (EKEDC) can look forward to a holiday of uninterrupted power supply in their homes from Tuesday (tomorrow). The plan to ensure that all electricity consumers under the EKEDC enjoy steady supply during the Eid-El-Fitr holiday has been made known by the distribution company’s General Manager, Corporate Communications, Mr. Godwin Idemudia.

Idemudia said in a statement on Monday (today) that necessary measures have been put in place for successful supply of uninterrupted electricity during and beyond the holiday period.

He is quoted as saying by NAN, “Every department, especially the Fault Monitoring and Clearing Unit, has been mobilised toward sustaining regular power supply within our network.

“We have mapped out (an) effective strategy to ensure that all customers within the network enjoy regular power supply during the celebration and beyond.

“In case, there is any spark from the pole or fault from EKEDC transformer, our technical crew is on standby in all our Business Units.

“Our technical crew will work throughout the holiday to rectify electrical faults so that customers can enjoy the holiday.”

There was a worrying report at the weekend that the country again lost almost 2,000 MW to grid collapse, which further dented the hopes of Nigerians that a solution to the appalling electricity situation was in progress.

The Federal Government has declared Tuesday, June 4 and Wednesday, June 5, 2019 as the public holidays to celebrate the Eid-El-Fitr.

So, going by Mr. Idemudia’s words, electricity for consumers under the EKEDC is not expected to blink during the holiday.
