Ikeja Electric Appeals for Understanding as Rainstorm Damages Installationsikj
The Management of Ikeja Electric has appealed to its esteemed customers living in some parts of its network over the disruption of power supply to them, caused by the rainstorm that wreaked havoc on its installations last Friday.
The areas affected include Ilupeju, Ikeja GRA, Adeniyi Jones and Ajao Road, both in Ikeja as well as Ojodu. Others are in Idimu, Egbe, Abule-Egba and Ikorodu.
A statement issued by the company’s Head of Corporate Communications, Felix Ofulue, explained that the power outage being experienced in these areas were caused by torrential rainstorm which knocked down electrical poles and other installations.
Ofulue said although the damage done by the rainstorm on the network was huge, customers should be assured of Ikeja Electric’s swiftness in dealing with the situation, noting that teams of engineers have been deployed and are currently working round the clock to ensure power supply is restored to these areas in the shortest possible time.
‘’We sincerely thank our valued customers for their patience and understanding, with the assurance that power supply will be restored soon, Ofulue stated’’.
