The Cross River State Government has explained that the cut in power supply from the 23 megawatts  power in the last 24 hours is due to a fire outbreak in Marian Market, Calabar.

Recall that the state was agog few days ago when the state government launched the 23 megawatts power plant which supplied uninterrupted power for over 72 hours to residents of Calabar metropolis.

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.
