As most Nigerians would have noticed, there has been a significant drop in the supply of electricity across the country. This is as a result of a drop in power generation from a peak of 4,517 megawatts attained on December 21, 2012 to 3,443MW on Tuesday.
The Punch, which made this known, has revealed that the drop in power generation was as a result of low gas supply to thermal power plants. Also, the Assistant Director, Press, Power Ministry, Mrs. Pat Deworitshe, confirmed that power generation had dropped and ascribed the development to “general system collapse.”
According to Deworitshe “There is a general system collapse. I just spoke with the MD, Power Generation Station, Egbin, and he said there is a general system collapse. However, we are trying our best to fix it so that everybody can enjoy power supply.”
