Oil Workers’ Strike Triggers Drop In Electricity Generation to 3086MW

Following the ongoing strike by workers in Nigeria’s oil and gas sector, overall electricity generation profile has dropped to about 3,086.10 megawatts (MW).

The Minister of Power, Prof. Chinedu Nebo, yesterday confirmed that the industrial action embarked upon by the oil workers across the country was taking a toll on gas supply to key thermal generation plants in the country, hence, the drop in power supply.

Although, the Minister did not state the quantity of drop in the country’s electricity generation, the daily generation profile obtained from the ministry’s website indicated that the recent generation growth that was recorded has sharply plunged to 3,086.10MW, starting from Tuesday when the strike took off fully.
