The Abuja Electricity Distribution Company (AEDC) has given  reason for the current major power disruption being experienced in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) and other neighbouring states.

ABUJAPRESS reports that most communities in FCT have been left without electricity in recent days, while others have had to manage with 'epileptic' power supply.

But in a public notice on Saturday, AEDC blamed the development on the reduced load of power allocation.

The notice, which was addressed to customers, and obtained by ABUJAPRESS in Abuja, read: "Dear Esteemed Customers, We are aware that the instability of electricity supply has persisted.

" This is still due to the reduced load allocation to our franchise area. AEDC's allocation is currently 228.63MW which is significantly lower than the average allocation of 650MW during optimal generation period.

"We wish to assure our customers that the allocation we
receive will be equitably distributed while all stakeholders
relentlessly work towards a lasting solution.

" We sincerely regret the inconveniences and appeal for your
usual understanding."
