“The implication of this is that from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. everyday, the substations controlling these areas will be switched off which will affect the feeders connected to them.
“This will affect all categories of customers within the area especially our Maximum Demand (MD) customers such as Ikeja City Mall, Police College, Lagos State University Teaching Hospital and the Ikeja High Court.”
He added that the TCN would also move to Alimosho and Agege axis during the next stage.
Kumapayi noted that the upgrade was a power sector initiative to boost the transmission and distribution of electricity to Nigerians.
Also, Mr. Felix Ofulue, Head, Corporate Communications, Ikeja Electric, said the DisCo had written to the MD customers notifying them of the situation.
Ofulue said the company was also meeting with its bilateral power supply agreement partners and appealed to all those affected to exercise patience with the DisCo during the period.
“Even though this is a TCN project, it is our duty to inform our customers of the situation because we are the ones that interface with them on a daily basis.
“We believe it will be for the benefit of our customers at the end of the day and will also allow Ikeja Electric to invest more in our system to improve power supply to customers under our network,”Ofulue said.
