Nationwide Blackout Allegedly Imminent

A nationwide blackout is imminent as Nigeria power generation has fallen below the 3,000 megawatts mark.




Sadly, number of idle power plants increased to eight on Sunday from five on Friday.

Reports say the nation’s power grid lost a total of 743.4MW over the weekend as generation dropped from 3,306.6MW on Friday to 2,632.4MW and 2,563.2MW on Saturday and Sunday, respectively.

It was gathered that a total generation stood at 2,886.7MW as of 6am on Monday, with seven power plants, including Sapele II and Alaoji II not generating any megawatt.

Other idle plants on Monday were Afam IV & V, Gbarain II, AES, ASCO and Rivers IPP, according to the latest data from the Federal Ministry of Power, Works and Housing.

  7. Can't this country build windmills as an alternative source? Build more dams? There are plenty of windy deserts in the north, Or allow individuals generate their own power.

    1. My dear Nigerians will cope, it ain't new. Companies spend millions on diesel, and households spends thousands on fuel, so we have already adapted to having no light, so it is no news. The only thing that will be news is.... If they announce that there will be no interruption of power.

  20. Real bad luck.everything is just failing, I still believe in osibanjo though. Buhari should rising and let him take over
    During buhari's campaign, people were saying he's an honest man, he's upright and all, now where is the honesty in him? He has been sick since he came into power, one health issue or the other. He should resign please. We are tired of excuses, deceit and lies. Nigerian as a nation needs repentance,by everyone of us restructuring out mind and mentality

    1. Same here. When I comment on post like this most times, they insult me.

      We've not bought diesel this year, the tank is still full. We used the gen last when power was cut off during the flood and that's like 3weeks ago.
