EEDC To Restore Power In Imo

The Enugu Electricity Distribution Company (EEDC) assured on Wednesday that power supply would be restored in all parts of Imo soon after NLC called off its strike.

The face-off between the NLC and the state government led to a total blackout in Owerri since Thursday and grounded the operations of the EEDC, which feeds power to Imo.

It also led to the sacking of the Imo Commissioner of Labour and Productivity,  Ford Ozumba by Governor Hope Uzodinma on Saturday.

Also on Saturday, hoteliers in Imo urged the state government and the state’s chapter of the NLC to settle their differences to save the tourism industry in the state from a collapse.

EEDC’s spokesman Emeka Ezeh, however, assured in a statement he issued in Enugu on Wednesday that power supply would soon be restored.

“An understanding was reached on Tuesday between the Imo government and the NLC to suspend the industrial action.

“Imo government was given two weeks to harmonise and implement all issues raised by the labour union.

“As a result, the Transmission Company of Nigeria has been informed by the labour union to restore supply immediately to enable the EEDC to distribute power to its customers,’’ Ezeh stated.

He added that all staff of the company were expected to immediately resume normal duties at their respective districts in Imo.
