As the three-day repair
work on Afam powerline by Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) ended yesterday, authorities of the Port Harcourt Electricity Distributioin Company (PHED) have assured electricity consumers in Port Harcourt of improved supply.
PHED’s spokesman, Mr John Onyi, gave the assurance in a telephone interview with our correspondent yesterday in Port Harcourt.
Onyi confirmed that TCN had completed the three-day work on the Afam line, linking Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital, and its environs.
He said, just as promised the company’s valued customers, PHED can assure that electricity consumers in the affected areas would have better supply.
Onyi explained further that, the development is an obvious indication that the consumers would have impressive service supply during the Christmas and New year celebrations.
He commended the electricity users for their patience while the repair work lasted, stressing that, as a responsible corporate organisation, reassures customers of fulfillment of the firm’s promise of improved supply.
The PHED spokesperson, however, urged electricity users to ensure prompt payment of their bills to enable the firm meet its supply targets.
It would be recalled that PHED announced a three-day power cut beginning from Friday to Sunday, as a result of routine repair works embarked on the Port Harcourt link line with Afam Power Station, by TCN.
