However, the daily operational report of the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) issued at the weekend showed that many of the power plants are currently affected by gas shortage, water management and transmission problems.
No fewer than 16 thermal plants were affected by lack of gas supply, as the Niger Delta militants continued to attack gas facilities in the region. Among the thermal plants that have suffered from sabotage attacks were Olorunshogo NIPP which lost 480MW; Omotosho (228MW); Geregu (435MW); Delta lost 410MW; Olorunsogo Gas (228MW); Sapele (258MW) and Egbing lost 717MW among others.
This situation has triggered concerns from the consumers who believed that the privatisation of the power sector would have done more good to the nation, if proper planning was in place.
