The Jos Electricity Distribution Plc (JED) has alerted residents in Plateau, Bauchi and Gombe states of scheduled power outages from August 28 to September 2.
According to a statement by the company’s spokesperson, Friday Elijah, the outages will occur daily from 9 am to 5 pm during these dates.
According to him, the scheduled power cuts are part of a plan implemented by the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) to allow local engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contractors to conduct installations.
“The planned outage by TCN is to enable its EPCC contractors to safely connect the gantry beam of the new APO line to the existing Lafia line-Jos 330kv double circuit,” the statement read.
An increase in load shedding is expected during this period as the 330KV Jos complex will remain on supply via the Kaduna-Jos 330KV line.
Elijah has further appealed to customers for patience, reinforcing the company’s commitment to improving service standards.
Earlier in April, JED terminated employment contracts of 20 of its employees following allegations of involvement in criminal activities.
Abdu Mohammed, the Managing Director of JED, emphasized that the company would not tolerate any activities detrimental to its reputation,
meanwhile stating that the firm is focused on ensuring regular electricity supply in its franchise states including Bauchi, Benue, Plateau, and Gombe.
