Nigeria: PHCN Customers in Mararraba, Nyanya Keffi, to Have Smooth Power Supply Soon

Electricity consumers in Nyanya in FCT and Mararraba, Ado and Keffi in Nasarawa State will enjoy stable power supply when the federal government inaugurates the 33KVA substation in Karu supplied by the World Bank.

Mr Greyne Anosike, the Deputy Director, Media/Public Relations, Federal Ministry of Power said this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja on Friday.

Although he did not say when the substation will be inaugurated, he said "it is because of the frequent power outage challenges faced by customers in those areas that the substation was built.

"The World Bank decided to assist in Mararraba, Nyanya, Ado and Keffi areas by building the 33KVA substation at Karu in the FCT to improve power supply in the areas.

"Similar gestures were done in Apo and Kubwa and the areas are now having uninterrupted power supply," he said.

Anosike explained that the 33KVA substation has been completed "but may be Mr President's attention has not been drawn to it or his tight schedules made it not to be inaugurated".

He gave assurance that once the station is inaugurated, power instability in those areas will be rectified.
