Kaduna Elec­tric ex­plains power out­age in Gusau

Daily Trust - - NEWS - From Chris­tiana T. Alabi, Kaduna

The man­age­ment of Kaduna Elec­tric has apol­o­gised to cus­tomers in Gusau and sur­round­ing lo­cal gov­ern­ment ar­eas of Zam­fara State that have had power fail­ure a cou­ple of days now.

The com­pany blamed the fail­ure on a fire that gut­ted the Trans­mis­sion Com­pany of Nigeria (TCN) sub-sta­tion in Gusau on Sun­day, July 30.

A state­ment by the Head, Cor­po­rate Com­mu­ni­ca­tions of the Com­pany, Ab­du­lazeez Ab­dul­lahi, said valu­able power sup­ply assets were lost to the in­ferno, but as­sured that en­gi­neer­ing and tech­ni­cal crew from the TCN were work­ing to re­pair dam­aged equip­ment.

“While we re­gret the in­con­ve­nience which the un­ex­pected out­age has caused our es­teemed cus­tomers, we are quick to ad­vice that ex­tra vig­i­lance by the cus­tomers and the se­cu­rity agen­cies is highly needed now to avert vandalism of power sup­ply fa­cil­i­ties in the af­fected ar­eas,” the state­ment said.
