power-black-outThe Transmission Company of Nigeria has announced that six states of the federation will experience power outage on Saturday and Sunday.

In a statement issued by the Assistant General Manager, Public Affairs, TCN, Mr. Dave Ifabiyi, in Abuja on Tuesday, the affected states are Abia, Imo, Enugu, Ebonyi, Imo and parts of Benue.

According to Ifabiyi, the outage will enable the company’s contractors enhance the capacity of the transmission system that serves the affected areas.

He said, “In the bid to complete the final connection works on the new double circuit 330kV transmission line from Benin, in Edo State, to Onitsha, in Anambra State, and the associated substation at Onitsha, there will be power interruption to Abia, Anambra, Enugu, Ebonyi and Imo states in the eastern part of the federation, as well as parts of Benue State on Saturday, January 26 and Sunday, January 27, 2013.

“The crucial final connection works to be carried out by our contractors, having completed the stringing of 330kV double circuit transmission line across River Niger, aim at enhancing the transmission capacity in the area and improving grid power delivery and reliability nationwide.”

The statement adds that TCN regrets any inconveniences the two-day power interruption would cause the governments and people of the affected states.
