Ikeja Power Problems Not Our Fault-Ikeja Electric

THE Ikeja Electricity Distribution Company (Ikeja Electric) has explained the reason behind the power outage being experienced in Ikeja for over one week.

Head, Communication and Strategy, Ikeja Electric, Olanipekun Adeyanju, confirmed that there was gross shortfall in supply and Ikeja Electric gets 330MW from the grid.

He said: “We have transmission limitation coupled with the substantial decline in supply from the grid. We need at least 1,200MW to satisfy customers’ requirement but only get 330MW.

“But in the short term, we will manage our load-shedding programme effectively to ensure that whatever we get from the grid is evenly distributed so that no customer is short-changed.”

In the long term, he said the company is working on its embedded power generation programme. We are talking with some embedded power generators to complement whatever supply that will come from the grid. I appeal to our customers to be patient with us as we look at exploiting off-grid supply.”
