Ikeja Electric to Disrupt Power Supply for One Wee

By Dipo Olowookere

The management of Ikeja Electric (IE) has announced that some of its customers would experience disruption of power supply for about one week.

The reason for this, according to a statement issued by the electricity firm, is because of the commencement of a complete rehabilitation of one of its substations.

Ikeja Electric explained in the statement that the rehabilitation of the station was part of efforts to improve power supply to its customers.

“As part of her strategic effort to improve power supply to customers across its network, Ikeja Electric will be carrying out a complete rehabilitation of Maryland Injection Substation which will involve the replacement of obsolete Switch Gear Panels at the Switch room, between November 3 and 10, 2017, the statement signed by the firm’s Head of Corporate Communications, Mr Felix Ofulue said.

The exercise, according to Mr Ofulue, will “affect power supply to Mende, Anthony, Maryland, Ikeja GRA, Shonibare Estate and part of Ojota, Ketu, Ikosi, Demurin and environs.”

However, he assured that, “Power supply will be restored immediately after the completion of the exercise.”

The firm called for the understanding and cooperation of all customers that will be affected, emphasising that “all arrangements to ensure the completion of the rehabilitation at the stipulated time have been put in place.”

Mr Ofulue further assured that regular updates will be made available through various channels of communications especially with the CDC, CDA Chairmen and other stakeholders.

He said apart from getting updates on IE website, www.ikejaelectric.com, customers can also call IE customer care lines 01-7000250, 01-4483900 and 0700-0-2255-43 for more information.”
