The Abuja Electricity Distribution Company (AEDC) has appealed to its customers for patience after the company cut off its power supply early hours on Tuesday, September 5, following the strike action initiated by the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC).
AEDC asked its customers to bear with them as they are currently having discussions with their stakeholders on how to handle the issue.
The company had earlier on Tuesday issued a statement via Twitter (X) saying that the prolonged power supply outage was due to the strike action by the NLC.
The AEDC statement signed by the management read:
”Dear Valued Customers,
“We are aware of the general power outage being experienced across our franchise due to enforcement by NLC of the 2-day warning strike embarked upon by the labour union.
“We apologize for any inconvenience you may be experiencing as a result of this, as we continue our engagement with key stakeholders toward minimizing the impact of the strike on our customers.
“In the meantime, we recommend that you take necessary precautions to manage the outage effectively. Kindly unplug sensitive electronic devices and appliances from power sources pending the restoration of power.
“We will continue to provide updates on developments regarding the impact of the strike action on our operations through our official social media handles.
“Thank you for your understanding and continued support during this challenging time. We remain committed to serving you.”
