After several hours of blackout in Imo State, the Enugu Electricity Distribution Company PLC (EEDC) has finally updated its esteemed customers in Imo State the reason for the loss of supply currently being experienced.
The Distribution company says it is a result of the industrial action by the organised labour union in Imo State. This led to the shutting down of our source of supply, leaving them with no energy to distribute.
EEDC confirmed that the situation is applied to all the customers in the state "as a result, all our customers in Imo State are without electricity supply"
The statement reads:
We understand the inconveniences this situation will cause our customers, and we are hopeful that the issue will be resolved within the shortest possible time so we can restore supply to our customers.
We therefore appeal to our customers to be vigilant and ensure the electricity infrastructure serving them are not attacked by vandals who might want to take advantage of the situation to attack and vandalise electricity facilities.
We remain committed and working assiduously to deliver improved services.
