Just when Lagosians are lamenting about the poor state of electricity in Lagos and the consumers led Citizens’ Access to Electricity Initiatives, CATEIN, still continue on their protest, there is a strong indication that Lagosians might have to prepare for a more sorry case; as Eko Electricity Distribution Company, Eko DISCO and Ikeja Electricity Distribution Company, Ikeja DISCO experience more decline in the megawatts allotted to them by the Transmission Company of Nigeria, TCN.
According to a spokesman for the Eko and Ikeja DISCO, Mr. Felix Ofulue, “The power supply is gradually going down across our networks as we are engaged in serious load-shedding because of the non-availability of energy which has to be rationed based on what we receive.
For the past one week, we had received between 343 megawatt and 268 megawatt. But for the past two days, since the picketing of our facilities, we have received 169 megawatts. This is because the system has to be shut down due to no operations”.
