Just In: Ayade’s 23 megawatts Power Plant restores light to Calabar metropolis

21 August 2019 
The Cross River State Government CRSG has informed that power supply courtesy of the 23 Megawatt Power Station has been restored to the Calabar metropolis following a few hours shut down. 
According to Christian Ita the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor 'Following the fixing of the problem with power cables around Marian Market, electricity has been restored to the Calabar metropolis from the 23 megawatts Calabar Power Plant.' 
Several hours before this statement Ita noted in a 'public announcement' that
'The Cross River State Government wishes to inform the general public that the cut in power supply from the 23 megawatts Calabar Power plant in the last 24 hours to the Calabar metropolis is due to a fire outbreak at the Marian market which affected some transmission cables.
'The power plant had to be shut down to minimise damage caused by the inferno.
A team of engineers is currently working round the clock to fix the problem. Power will be restored as soon as this is done.
Government regrets the inconveniences this has caused residents of the metropolis.'
