Fashola on Power Outages; “Our Determination To Overcome it is Bigger Than The Problem”

fasholaMinister of Power, Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, Wednesday, explained the cause of the nationwide electricity epileptic. He said the power outage was caused by the damaged forcados.
Fashola assured Nigerians that the government was working to remedy the situation, adding that the 10,000 megawatts projected to be achieved by the President was realistic.
He said: “Our intervention today was an update to council on the status of power, the causes of the outages that are being experienced and plans to solve them.
“Essentially, it’s gas supply issue arising from the problems that are now well reported; of the failure of our operational platforms at Forcados, where the repairs are ongoing to restore the petroleum gas lines.
“It is a Ministry of Petroleum issue, they are keeping us in the loop about all of these and when all of these will be restored to normal service.
“As a result of this, our power production has dropped from 5,000 megawatts to about 3000 to 3,200 megawatts, depending on other collateral problems. What was not enough at 5,000 is even now much more difficult to share at 3,000.
“This is a teething problem, it won’t last for long, our determination to overcome it is bigger than the problem and I’m very sure it will be overcome.”
