Blackout: FCT Electricity Consumers Count Losses, Want FG Intervention


By Constance Athekeme

Some electricity consumers in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) have continued to count their losses following the power outage recorded in the territory for two days.

The consumers told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in separate interviews on Wednesday in Abuja that blackout had adversely affected their socio-economic life.

NAN reports that there has been blackout in most parts of the FCT, following the 2-day warning strike by the NLC.

They, therefore, appealed to the Federal Government to urgently resolve  the problem that necessitated the two-day strike.

The Abuja Electricity Distribution Company (AEDC) attributed the power outage being experienced in its franchise areas to the NLC warning strike.

The management of AEDC made this known in a statement in Abuja on Tuesday.

”We are aware of the general power outage being experienced across our franchise, this is due to enforcement of the two-day warning strike embarked upon by the labour union.
