The Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) says it has restored power supply on most of its 33KVA feeders in Kaduna state.


The company also said the Kaduna Distribution Company (KAEDCO) has indicated readiness to pick supply.


The TCN had disconnected power on Sunday in compliance with the five-day warning strike declared by the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) in the state.


The NLC, however, suspended the strike on Wednesday following a request for negotiation by the federal government.


But Nasir el-Rufai, the governor, said the government will not engage in a negotiation with the TCN until power is restored in the state.


In a statement, Ndidi Mbah, TCN general manager of public affairs, listed the 33kV feeders on which TCN had restored power to include Mogadishu, Abakwa, Nigerian Airforce Base, Ungwa Dosa, Turunku, Arewa, Airport, Kinkinau, Narayi and Independence feeders.


She said the Jaji and Rigasa feeders had also been energised while Olam, PAN and UNTL are about to be energised.


 “The Waterworks feeder was energised but tripped as a result of a fault,” she said.


“TCN will continue to gradually restore supply on the other feeders as soon as KAEDCO indicates readiness to take supply.”
