According to a the company the rationing which will commence today (Tuesday) also affect those living around Lekki and some parts of Ajah, all in Lagos Island.
Godwin Idemudia General Manager, Corporate Communications of Eko Disco explained that the power rationing is to enable the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) to upgrade both Line 1 and Line 2 of Ajah-Alagbon transmission line from 132kv to 330kv.
