System collapse: EEDC calls for calm


The Enugu Electricity Distribution Company (EEDC), has called on its consumers to remain calm and patient as it addresses a case of system collapse.

The call was made by EEDC’s Head of Corporate Communications, Mr Emeka Ezeh, in a statement made available to newsmen in Owerri on Tuesday.

Ezeh thanked the Company’s customers for their understanding as it worked to restore supply after a system collapse on March 14.


He, however, said that despite the restoration of supply, the system collapsed again on March 15.

“The Enugu Electricity Distribution PLC (EEDC) wishes to inform its esteemed customers of another system collapse which occurred at 5.10 pm this evening, Tuesday, 15th March, 2022.

“This is coming barely 24 hours after the grid collapse was experienced in the early hours of Monday, March 14, 2022.

“As a result of this unfortunate development, all our outgoing feeders are out and supply to our customers in Abia, Anambra, Ebonyi, Enugu, and Imo States has been affected,” he said.


He reassured customers that the company is already on standby, awaiting further directives from the National Control Centre (NCC) for restoration of supply. (NAN)
