The management of Ibadan Electricity Distribution Company (IBEDC) has said that the states under its distribution channel will experience prolonged power outage due to low weekly power allocation to its network by Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN).
This is contained in a statement issued by IBEDC’s Senior Communication Officer, Kikelomo Owoeye, on Sunday in Osogbo.
According to the statement, Ogun, Oyo, Ibadan, Osun, and Kwara region would be affected by the power outage.
It stated further that the weekly power allocation to IBEDC network by TCN had dropped from 692.5 megawatts to 368.5 megawatts.
“This has led to massive load shedding across our franchise in Ogun, Oyo, Ibadan, Osun, and Kwara region.
“Kindly bear with us, as we work with stakeholders in the electricity value chain on sustainable resolution,” IBEDC said.
