Minister Apologizes For Recent Power Outages

The Minister of Power, Sale Mamman, has apologized for the recent power outages experienced in different parts of the country.


 


In a series of tweets posted on his Twitter handle today April 15, Mamman attributed the power outage to the breakdown of eight power plants.


 


His tweets read;


''I sincerely regret the recent Power outages across the Nation and the difficulties it has brought with it, and wish to assure my Fellow Nigerians that everyone involved is working assiduously to restore the National grid to its previous historical levels and exceed that.


The problem is caused by the breakdown of some National Integrated Power Plants supplying electricity to the national grid. The plants are namely, Sapele, Afam, Olonrunsogo, Omotosho, Ibom, Egbin, Alaoji and Ihovbor. The Jebba Power Plant was shut down for annual maintenance.


Seven other integrated Power plants, namely Geregu, Sepele, Omotosho, Gbarain, Omuku, Paras and Alaoji are experiencing gas constraints while the Shiroro hydroelectric power plant has water management issues.''
