Chibiri community in Kuje Area Council of the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja is set to enjoy power supply again after over 10 months in total darkness.
The Abuja Electricity Distribution Company (AEDC) was confirmed to have provided the community a new 500 KVA transformer on Thursday, May 20, in place of the one that packed up in July 2020.
Some people in the community, who spoke to our reporter, thanked the management of the AEDC for responding to their cry, even though over 10 months after the old transformer blew up.
Our reporter gathered that the AEDC approved the release of a new transformer to the community since December 2020, but that there had not been any in store to be supplied since then.
People in the community went through Christmas, New Year and other recent festivals in darkness, with some of them spending a lot on fuel daily to power their generating sets.
