NEWSPower blackout: FCT residents count losses, urge FG to intervene

Many residents of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) have continued to count their losses following the power blackouts in most parts of the Territory.The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that while some parts of the Territory are supplied power for some hours, some areas have not even had it for five consecutive days.The poor power supply or blackouts in some parts of the Territory had lingered for more than a month.The Abuja Electricity Distribution Company (AEDC) had attributed the poor supply of electricity to its franchise areas to low power generation from the national grid.Mr Donald Etim, the AEDC Chief Marketing Officer, had said this in a statement issued in Abuja on March 4.“The AEDC wishes to inform our customers in Kogi, Niger, Nasarawa and the FCT that the current low and unstable supply of electricity to homes and businesses is as a result of low power generated to the national grid.In recent weeks, the level of power generated and served to the national grid for onward delivery to customers has been abysmally low,” Etim said.The development had led to load shedding in the affected areas.
