Power Outage To Last Longer – IBEDC Hints Oyo Residents, Gives Reason



THE management of Ibadan Electricity Distribution Company (IBEDC) says that the states under its franchise will experience prolonged power outages 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.




It said that Ogun, Oyo, Ibadan, Osun and Kwara region would be affected by the power outage. According to the statement, 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.
