THE management of Eko Electricity Distribution Company, EKEDC, has attributed the blackout to the heavy down pour, assuring of possible solution.
According to General Manager, Corporate Communications, EKEDC, Godwin Idemudia, the flood that resulted from the torrential rains over the weekend had caused damage to some of the company’s equipment in Lekki, Ikoyi, Ijora, Victoria Island and some other parts of Lagos metropolis under the coverage of the company.
He said in a statement that the flood had caused water seepage into some sensitive and vital equipment and this had resulted in the shutdown of some distribution substations as well as some 11/33KV injection substations.
Idemudia added that some low tension and high tension poles and lines were also felled by the flood.
The statement further hinted that EKEDC technical experts have since swung into action to clear all the faults within the shortest possible time.
While expressing optimism that all faults would be fixed soon, Mr Idemudia then appealed to all affected by the outage occasioned by the flood to please bear with the company while the restoration process lasts.
