Why There Is Power Outage In Female Hostel – Gregory University Clarifies | READ DETAILS

The management of Gregory University Uturu in Abia state, has explained the cause of the power outage currently being experienced in the female hostel of the institution.

The varsity in a statement released by it’s Public Relations Officer (PRO), Ebubechi Iwuh explained that the power outage is as a result of the break down of a 500 KVA generator meant to generate power to the entire institution.

Iwuh explained that the varsity has not been able to fix the generator due to it’s inability to “secure parts and skilled workmanship due to threats of lockdown in the entire South East which made movement between Uturu and other towns very difficult.”



The PRO informed that the institution has since inception in 2012 relied on generators and solar systems to seamlessly supply power to over 3000 members of the university community.

“It is an established fact that the Gregory University Uturu management has for the past 10 years of the institution’s corporate existence been constrained by the absence of power from the national grid to resort to supplying light to the campus with different capacity ranges of generator sets and solar systems. This burden management has continued to bear even in the face of sky rocketing prices of petroleum products” the statement read in part.

According to Iwuh, concerted efforts had been made to restore light to parts of the campus through alternative means but unfortunately the deployed equipment began supplying more voltage of power than required and had to be shut down to avoid causing further damage to students appliances.

While reasserting the commitment of the university management to the wellbeing and academic advancement of the students, the management appealed for understanding especially as “the unfortunate development is currently being holistically addressed to ensure realization of a permanent solution, even as management, while prioritizing the welfare of students, again reassures that very soon normalcy will be restored”.
