The Enugu Electricity Distribution Company PLC (EEDC) has explained that the reason for the loss of supply currently being experienced in parts of its network is due to the strike action embarked on by the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC), which resulted to the shutdown of the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) Stations feeding its Injection Substations.
The Head of Corporate Communications, EEDC, Mr. Emeka Ezeh, in a statement, confirmed the affected TCN Stations as, New Haven, Ohiya, and Egbu Transmission Stations.
According to him, the development affected supply to customers of EEDC under Ogui, Abakpa, Umuahia, Owerri, New Owerri, Orlu, and Mbaise districts, feeding from the affected TCN Stations.
