Abuja to experience six hours of blackout on Saturday

Residents in some parts of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Abuja should brace for a six-hour power outage on Saturday as announced by the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN).

The spokesperson of the commission, Ndidi Mbah, revealed in a statement on Friday that the scheduled maintenance is set to take place from 9am to 3pm.

This maintenance is necessary for the TCN’s maintenance crew to conduct a routine annual preventive maintenance on its 132kV line 1 at both Gwagwalada and Apo Transmission Substations.

As a result, a power interruption at the 132/33kV Kukwaba Transmission Substation is expected for six hours on Saturday.

The areas that will be affected include parts of Lokogoma, Kabusa Garden, TradeMore, Pyakasa, Aherita, Chika, Games Village, Stadium, Wuye, Utako, Life Camp, and Idu, according to the TCN Public Affairs General Manager.

While apologizing for the inconvenience, Mbah assured customers that the power supply would be reinstated after the maintenance work.

“The Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) wishes to announce that its maintenance crew will carry out a scheduled annual preventive maintenance on its 132kV line 1 at both Gwagwalada and Apo Transmission Substations. The maintenance is scheduled for Saturday, 10th February 2024, between 9:00 am to 3:00 pm. Consequently, there will be a power interruption at the 132/33kV Kukwaba Transmission Substation for six hours on Saturday,” the statement read.
