The Distribution Company (PHED) says the blackout in state was caused by transmission constraints outside its control.

The poor supply being experienced across was worsened by a total system collapse that threw the entire state into total darkness since Thursday.

Reacting to the development, Mr John Onyi, manager, corporate communications, PHED who regretted the incident, said that efforts were underway by Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) to clear the fault.

Onyi said in a telephone interview with Orient Daily that supply to Yenagoa, Bayelsa capital was lost on Thursday evening due to a fault on TCN’s network which serves PHED customers in Bayelsa.
