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.
Chief Press Secretary to Governor
