Ikotun Business Unit of PHCN has assured residents in Ijegun area of Lagos of constant electricity supply in the next 24 hours.
Mrs Esther Akinyode, the Spokesperson for the unit, gave the assurance in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos on Wednesday.
"The erratic power supply in the last week in Ijegun is as a result of technical faults.
"But we have addressed over 80 per cent of what caused the blackout, " she said.
She told NAN that 80 per cent of the technical problems had been rectified by Tuesday.
Akinyode said that an accident, which caused one of the electric poles to fall, compounded the supply challenges in the area.
She said that efforts were being made to mount another pole in the affected area.
"The capacity of the transformers at Ijegun is being upgraded from 15MVA to 30MVA, " she told NAN.
She said that PHCN officials had also started mounting new transformers on top of electric poles in the area.
"I implore the residents to bear with us as they will soon begin to enjoy the full worth of the money they paid as bills," she said.
On vandalism of PHCN properties, Akinyode told NAN that such acts had reduced tremendously in the area.
She said that theft of PHCN cables had also reduced in the zone, but advised that "residents should continue to keep vigil". NAN
