The management of Eko Electricity Distribution Company (EKEDC) apologised to its customers in some parts of Lagos and Ogun State over the prolonged outage experienced in the affected areas on Sunday.

According to him, the company’s technical team is working on promptly resolving the faults.
“Some of the affected areas in Lagos and Ogun include Ijuri, Opic, Otto-Awori, Estate, Evans, and Shagamu.
“While appealing for your patience and understanding, kindly note that the technical team is working round the clock to ensure all faults are cleared,” he said.
Mr Lasaki assured that power would soon be restored to the affected customers.
“We are, therefore, appealing to customers to bear with us, as normalcy will be restored sooner than later.
