Ben Ezechime, Enugu
The Enugu Electricity Distribution Company (EEDC), has said that the current blackout in Imo State was a result of the Industrial action embarked by the state chapter of the Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC.
Mr Emeka Eze, Head of Corporate Communications of the company disclosed this in a press statement in Enugu on Thursday.
The statement read: “The Enugu Electricity Distribution Company PLC (EEDC) wishes to inform her esteemed customers in Imo State that the loss of supply currently being experienced is as a result of the industrial action by the organised labour union in Imo State.
“This led to the union shutting down our source of supply at Egbu Transmission Station, leaving us with no energy to distribute to our customers.
“As a result of this development, the whole of Imo State is without electricity supply.
“We appreciate the inconveniences this situation must have caused our customers, and we hope that the issue will be resolved soon.
“Be assured that we are on standby to restore supply once the industrial action is called off.”
He said that EEDC was committed to improving on its processes and delivering improved services to her esteemed customers.
