If you live in Okokomaiko, Abule Egba, Ikorodu and the rest of the places where 24-hour power supply is luxury, don’t hate, just work hard and upgrade.

One of the benefits of the upgrade is that electricity distribution companies will respect you enough to tell you before a major power outage.

You would ask since when did DISCOs start caring about the customers’ feelings, right? Well, check this.

The Eko Electricity Distribution Company (EKEDC) has announced a five-hour outage in Ikoyi and environs from 10.00am to 3.00pm on Sunday.

The EKEDC General Manager, Corporate Communications, Mr Godwin Idemudia, said this in a statement on Saturday.

He explained that the outage would be to enable the company to carry out maintenance work.

According to the general manager, the maintenance work will be carried out on the company’s 33KVA Bus Section 11 at the Fowler Injection Substation.

“We solicit understanding from all our customers who will be affected by the outage, especially for the inconveniences it will cause them even as this information comes to them at a short notice.

“Eko Disco promises to keep improving its equipment for better service delivery to electricity users in its network.

“We implore our customers to bear with us,” he said.

Yes, five hours without power supply is a lot of “inconveniences” for the rich.
