The management of Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) on Wednesday, attributed the inadequate power supply in some communities in Lagos to the upgrading of its transformers at Ejigbo and Alimosho transmission sub-stations, Vanguard reports.
Mrs Celestina Osin, the Principal Manager (Public Affairs), TCN, Lagos Region, disclosed this in an interview with newsmen in Lagos. According to her, all these communities are under Ikeja Electric Plc. She said the upgrading of transformers, which commenced on Oct.16, was for five weeks or more depending on the conclusion of the project by the contractors.
The spokesperson, however, assured that the upgrading of the transformers would increase the load capacities of the two sub-stations. She said the management of TCN and Ikeja Electric Plc would work to avoid power outage, promising that electricity supply would be given to electricity consumers for some hours.
