PETALING JAYA: Johor menteri besar Onn Hafiz Ghazi has slammed Tenaga Nasional Bhd (TNB) after a scheduled electricity supply cut turned into a prolonged blackout at the Sultan Iskandar Building.
In a Facebook post, Onn Hafiz shared a TNB notice on the scheduled disruption in supply, which was slated to take place from 8pm yesterday to 4am this morning for maintenance works.
The affected areas include the Sultan Iskandar Building, Customs, Immigration and Quarantine (CIQ) complex and Johor Bahru Sentral.
However, according to social media postings, the blackout had remained even at 9am, causing jams on the Causeway link as immigration officers were forced to conduct their processes manually.
“What has happened has greatly inconvenienced commuters and is embarrassing to Johor.
“TNB and the public works department have been ordered to resolve this issue immediately,” said Onn Hafiz.
FMT has reached out to TNB for comment.
