The Port Harcourt Electricity Distribution Company (PHED), said it has attained 90 per cent repairs on damaged networks, which has put some part of Rivers State into darkness.
John Onyi, the Manager Corporate Communication of PHED, who made the disclosure, said the distribution company was working to restore power to all the affected areas, stressing that so far, about 90 per cent of the work has been completed.
