The Jos Electricity Distribution Plc (JED) says residents in Plateau, Bauchi and Gombe states would experience power outages from August 28 to September 2.

In a statement on Saturday, Friday Elijah, the company’s spokesperson, said there would be outages between 9 am to 5 pm every day within this period.

He said the planned power cuts by the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) was to enable its local engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contractors, to make 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 reads.


‘’Please note that there will be an increase in load shedding during this period as the 330KV Jos complex will remain on supply via Kaduna-Jos 330KV line.”

Elijah urged customers to be patient and bear with the situation, adding that the company is determined to improve services

In April, the company sacked 20 employees over alleged involvement in criminal activities.

He added that the power company is working to ensure that its franchise states of Bauchi, Benue, Plateau, and Gombe, benefit from regular electricity supply.
