Power Minister Adelabu gives reasons for drop in electricity supply

The Minister of Power, Adebayo Adelabu, has given reason why electricity supply has gone down  nationwide.

Adelabu blamed gas constraints on thermal generating companies for the drop in power supply nationwide.

This was disclosed in a statement by Bolaji Tunji, special adviser, strategic communication and media relation to the Minister of Power.

He stated that the federal government is working to ensure outstanding payments are made to power generation companies to resolve the declining electricity supply.

“This is mainly due to a decreased gas supply to generation companies.

“This situation has led to a lower level of energy supplied to load centres, affecting the electricity supply to distribution companies.

“This will also enable distribution companies to supply more electricity to Nigerians.

“We acknowledge the unsustainable situation and expect a turnaround immediately.”
