 Electricity company speaks on  epileptic power supply in Ib

Ibadan Electricity Distribution Company (IBEDC), has attributed the drop in electricity supply to load allocation constraints across its franchise area from the national grid.

Busolami Tunwase, the Public Relations Officer of IBEDC, made this known during an interview with News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Ibadan on Friday.

NAN reports that IBEDC’s reaction was sequel to the threat of mass protest against the company by some communities in Ibadan on Wednesday.

The communities in Oluyole Estate Extension, had given IBEDC a seven-day ultimatum within which to restore their power supply or risk mass protest to its office.

According to NAN, the communities: Progressive Estate, Heritage Estate, Oorelope community, Ore-Ofe Estate and Ire-Akari community, are being fed by Ajinde Feeder of IBEDC.

Operating under Joint Community Development Association (CDA), the communities expressed dissatisfaction with the epileptic power supply which they had been subjected to in recent time.

They expressed displeasure with the epileptic power supply by IBEDC to their communities, particularly in the last seven weeks, saying that this had become unbearable to them.

However, IBEDC’s public relations officer said that the company had been working with stakeholders in the electricity value chain on timely and sustainable resolution to the problem.

Tunwase said that IBEDC had met with the representatives of some of the aggrieved communities to clarify the issues behind low power supply and apologise to them.

She added that Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) had also made a public announcement concerning the same issue.

“The drop in electricity supply currently being experienced is as a result of the load allocation constraints across our franchise area from the national grid.

“We are engaging with stakeholders in the electricity value chain on a lasting solution.

“We appeal for understanding and sincerely apologise for any inconvenience the situation might have caused,” she said
