IBEDC appeals to communities in Ogun over outage


The management of Ibadan Electricity Distribution Company (IBEDC) Plc has appealed to its numerous customers in some parts of Ogun State over power outage.

This is contained in  a statement made available to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) by Mr Akin Abiodun, the Chief Technical Officer and an  Engineer in Ibadan on Saturday.

He apologised for the disruption in supply, stating  that the outage was due to a heavy fault on a 33kV line that had a backlash on the grounding transformer at the TCN Sub-station at Papalanto.

According to him,  work is in progress to restore  supply to communities, including Papalanto, Arigbajo, Ejio Ifo, Agosi, Olomu road, Ososun village, Coker, Akinside, Ibogun, Oju-sango, Pakoto, Babyoku, Agebgise, Ogun bade, Iyana Cele, Iyana Ilogbo, Owode, Ijako, Isorosi, Ishaka Igbala and several others

He said the grounding transformer which were under the transformer’s protection had to be replaced before supply could be restored.

“Our technical team are working assiduously with their TCN counterparts to ensure power supply is restored  as soon as possible,” Abiodun said.

He further explained that IBEDC was sensitive to the effects of the outage on the customers.

“Once again we sincerely apologise for the inconvenience  and seek for the understanding and patience of all  in the affected communities,” Abiodun said.


  1. Well done Sir, but my own sole issue is about bringing of light in my area at Elite, Abeokuta. Between one week, they can bring the light like twice or thrice which will not last for some hours and it will be around midnight like 11pm to 4pm sometimes…. Like someone being a government worker, who had went to work since morning and came back in the evening or night without meeting light who has some clothes to iron, and IBEDC bring light around 11pm, how is that convineint enough to iron those clothes in the late hour…. Pls help us to review this issue of bringing light, it will be better if they can be giving us in the board day light, midnight and on weekends. Thanks
