The Management of Kaduna Electricity Distribution Company (Kaduna Electric) on Tuesday expressed regret over the two days blackout experienced by its customers in Kaduna, Sokoto, Kebbi and Zamfara states.

A press statement issued in Kaduna by the Head Corporate communications of the company, AbdulAzeez Abdullahi, attributed the prolong power outage to system failure recorded from the national grid as a result of the nationwide strike action embarked upon by the oil workers.

According to him, supply is just gradually being restored after the agreement was reached by the federal government and unions in the petroleum sector to call off the strike action. Most of the thermal power stations were shut down due to non availability of gas.

“Kaduna Electric is ready to deliver power to its customers as soon as it begins receiving supply from the Transmission Company of Nigeria, TCN,” he said.

He apologised for the inconvenience and difficulty the unfortunate development might have caused their valued customers.

He added that “the company has taken steps to fix back fallen poles in some parts of Kaduna as a result of the heavy rains to ensure efficient power supply and urged customers to be patient as normal supply will soon be restored.”
