TCN warns of blackout in Lagos

Some parts of Lagos State will experience power outage for about four hours following the need to carry out a routine maintenance on some facilities.

The Management of the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) made this known on Sunday in a statement it issued.

According to the General Manager (Public Affairs) of TCN, Mrs Ndidi Mbah, the maintenance on equipment at the Itire 132KV Transmission Sub-Station in Lagos on March 27 was to ensure effective supply of electricity to the areas concerned.

The areas, she said, were Ago, Okota, Ilasamaja, Ijesha, Itire and their environs.

The statement reads:

“The planned outage will enable TCN engineers from the Akangba sub-regional office in Surulere to carry out routine maintenance work on all the equipment at its Itire Transmission Sub-Station.

“The maintenance will also cover a 132KV insulated indoor switchyard for improved electricity supply to customers in the above-mentioned areas.

“TCN, therefore, appeals to customers that take supply from distribution load centres covering the areas mentioned above, to bear with it for four hours on Tuesday, March 27.

“The management of TCN apologises for the inconveniences that may result from the temporary disruption of supply to customers within the affected areas.

“TCN promises to continue upgrading and maintaining its equipment to serve Nigerians better, in line with the Federal Government’s strategy on incremental power supply to the people.’’
