The Abuja Electricity Distribution Company (AEDC) has attributed the power outage experienced in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) to its faulty 33 kV NIPP feeder.

The management of AEDC, in a statement on its official X handle on Wednesday, said that the power outage was also due to repairs on the transmission station at AT4.

“The management of AEDC wishes to notify its esteemed customers in Abuja that the power outage being experienced is due to a fault affecting the 33 kV NIPP feeder.

“Repairs on the transmission station at AT4 are ongoing,” it said.

The company listed the areas affected, including Dantata Estate, FO1, Chikakore, Byazin, Byazin Across, Gbazango, Guida Community, the Military Pension Board, and its environs.

“While we regret the inconvenience caused by the power outage, please be assured that all relevant stakeholders are working to ensure power supply is restored soonest,’’ it said.

Chronicle NG reported that residents of the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, have experienced electricity outages and power cuts in recent days.

The Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) had last Friday said there would be a seven-hour power interruption on Saturday and Sunday in some parts of Abuja.

The company said this was to enable its maintenance crew to carry out planned preventive maintenance on its 132/33kV 2X100MVA power transformers in the Apo Transmission Substation.
