The rehabilitation work, which will involve the replacement of obsolete Switch Gear Panels at the Switch room, will take place between 3rd and 10th November 2017.

Ofulue solicited the understanding and cooperation of all customers that will be affected by the power interruption, as all arrangements to ensure the completion of the rehabilitation at the stipulated time have been put in place.
