The Abuja Electricity Distribution Company, AEDC, has apologised to residents of the Abuja metropolis for the blackout experienced on Monday.
According to a statement signed by its general manager, Bode Fadipe, the blackout is a result of an indefinite strike embarked on by the staff of the organisation.
The staff of Abuja Electricity Distribution Company AEDC embarked on the strike following the failure of the Management to account for remittances deducted from their salaries.
The statement partly reads; “Following the industrial action embarked upon by the National Union of Electricity Employees, power supply to some of our areas of operation especially those on the 11KV network may be affected.
“We would like to assure all our customers that all hands are on deck to resolve the issue that prompted this action.
“We would like to apologise to our customers for the inconvenience and disruption.”
