Power supply has recently improved following the gradual recovery process of the National Grid after it collapsed for the fifth time in 2022.
According to the Transmission Company of Nigeria, TCN, who gave no exact reason, the collapse was reported to have occurred at 6.49pm on Sunday.
Investigations performed by Geeky Nigeria revealed that as of 7am Monday, the grid has recovered to 623.20 Megawatts with seven plants in operation.
The biggest supplier, Omotosho Power Plant, was with 153.80MW closely followed by Geregu NIPP with 131MW.
Other plants were Alaoji plant 108.70MW, Kainji Hydro 50MW, Paras Energy 42.10MW, 91.10MW and Trans-Amadi 46.50MW.
Although, the Minister of Power, Engr. Abubakar Aliyu had blamed the low electricity supply across the country to gas supply challenges.
In a statement by his media aide, Malam Isa Sanusi, the Minister noted that the drop in power generation was due to the partial shutdown of the Oben gas plant to address the repair of critical gas processing equipment.
“We wish to notify the public that Seplat Energy Plc has mobilized equipment, material and personnel to site with a view to expediting the restoration of normal gas supply to the affected power plants.
“We have been assured that the repair work will be concluded this weekend and normalcy will be restored. While pleading with electricity consumers with the current state of supply, we wish to assure the general public that efforts are being made for a sustained improvement of supply across the country,” he said.
