Port Harcourt Disco shuts power for 3 days


The Port Harcourt Electricity Distribution Company (PHED) will cut electricity supply to Port Harcourt for seven hours daily between Dec. 13 and 15 for repairs and upgrade of facilities.

Mr. John Onyi, the company Spokesman, announced this on Tuesday in Port Harcourt in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN).

According to him, the power outage will start from 10.00 a.m. to 5.00 p.m. daily during the three-day period.

“PHED wishes to notify her customers that Port Harcourt metropolis will witness power outage starting from today, Dec. 13 to Dec. 15, 2016.

“The outage will start between 10.00 a.m. and 5.00 p.m on each day and thereafter electricity supply would be restored to the city.

“The planned outage is to allow the technical crews from Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) to carry out routine maintenance of Afam Power Station,” the spokesman said.

Onyi said the repair work when completed, would enable the company to provide improved electricity supply to consumers in the city.

He appealed to residents to exercise patience during the period.
