Ikeja Electric Plc on Wednesday issued a statement on its X social media platform, acknowledging the recent power supply disruption.

The company attributed the issue to ongoing maintenance on the Nigeria Gas Company (NGC) gas pipeline, which supplies gas to the Egbin Power Generation Company.

The electricity distribution company explained that the maintenance work necessitated a temporary shutdown of the power plant, resulting in nationwide load shedding.

This incident adds to the series of power outages experienced across the country in recent weeks, largely linked to the collapse of the national grid. A BusinessDay report highlighted that the crisis was further intensified by widespread theft of power infrastructure.

Ikeja Electric expressed regret for the inconvenience caused and assured the public that normalcy would be restored promptly upon the completion of the maintenance work on the NGC gas pipeline.

“We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience caused by this situation and assure you that normalcy will be restored upon the completion of the maintenance work,” Ikeja Electric said in the statement.
