You are making me an OBJ fan?

Really?

if it wasn't for what OBJ started on those NIPP projects, would GEJ have even thought of them sef talkless of completing them?

You can read where it said funding for the projects stopped from 2007 (When OBJ left) to 2009. Yaradua ressurected the projects and died.. GEJ is only doing the ceremonial part of the project. Thats all.


your writ is devoid of reason sir. it is completely sentimental. if GEJ had been thinking of what people like you would say, he would have abandoned the project altogether and started his own out of pride

Omotosho power plant phase II was started in 2010 by China Machinery Engineering Corporation (CMEC). It has four units with a capacity of 500 MW, and the plant came online in May 2012. The cost of the restoration of 4 Plant units and balance of plant at Omotosho Power Plc. was the sum of USD 10,092,771.15 payable at the prevailing exchange rate at the time of payment, plus N78,753,893.30 (528,898.40 USD) for 5% VAT with a completion period of 6 months. Deborah Brautigam wrote that China Eximbank did not provide financial support for this expansion, which was apparently scaled back to 500MW instead of 750MW, because Nigeria's government defaulted on financing after paying a downpayment. Another source reported that the plant was currently co-operated by CMEC and SEPCO III. The power plant began full operation in December 2012.

I commend OBJ for initiating the power reforms and the NIPP Power projects which laid the foundation for the transformation work that GEJ is presently doing in power sector. However, serious credit must be given to GEJ for reviving and funding all these projects to completion. He is really working silently

He is silently working seriously, and his critics that are void of this knowledge are seriously loudly ignorantly criticising him.

With all these new plants we should be generating up to 6000 megawatts by now. But I seriously doubt that.

Well i know many of Obj performances as a president.His performances were necessary for the foundational problems of these country to be solved.so i think he deserved commendaton.omotosho,geregu,papalato and other power projects were his brain work.Dont forget as a scientist as mine,he launched Nigeria's space programme

Hopes for improved power supply in the country have been rekindled as Olorunsogo is set to generate 250mw of electricity to the national grid.

The first phase of the Olorunsogo Power plant, which was among the three gas-fired plants built by the administration of former President Olusegun Obasanjo was to generate 304MW of electricity. But the plant has been out of operation since 2007, due to lack of gas supply.

However, THISDAY learnt last weekend that the faulty units in the plants have been rehabilitated, while plans are being put in place for the supply of gas to the power station.
It was learnt that work is in progress for the completion of the phase two of the thermal station, which is expected to add 750mw to the national grid.

The Obasanjo administration had planned to complete the phase two of the power station at a cost of $449 million, as government was poised to raise power generation to 10, 000mw by the end of 2007.
However, due to gas constraints, most of the power stations operated far below their installed capacities, while others were completely shut.

Information obtained by THISDAY showed that the 414 capacity Geregu Power station, could only generate about 100mw due to gas shortage. The plant, according to the Power Holding Company of Nigeria (PHCN) sources, requires 92mmscf/d.
Similarly, Omotosho power plant, with capacity to generate 304mw, could generate only 39mw but requires 75mmscf/d.
The three power plants - Geregu, Omotosho and Olorunsogo, were built in the twilight of the Obasanjo administration.
Rekindling hopes of improved power supply from the thermal stations, Managing Director of National Integrated Power Project (NIPP), Mr. James Olotu, disclosed that at least two units of the Olorunsogo plant, are expected to add about 250 mw, while another 500mw will come from the Alaoji and Sapele power stations respectively.

‘We are expecting that by the end of this year, Olorunsogo (Papalanto) will give us at least two units before December, which will give us about 250 mw, Alaoji Power plant is expected to give us at least one or two units, which will be another 250mw, two units from Sapele, which will give us another 250mw and the sum of these is about 750mw to be added to the national grid,” he had said.
The Executive Director, Operations, PHCN, Mr. John Ayodele, revealed recently that in addition to the 230 million standard cubic feet of gas per day (mmscf/d) received, additional 600mmscf of gas daily is needed to power the gas turbine stations.

Re: President Jonathan Commissions 500MW Omotosho Power Plant by Edoblakky(m): 9:58pm On Oct 20, 2013
Pls let me educate you guys a bit. OBJ actually built some power plants but could not put them to work because there was no gas plan. I work in the oil and gas sector and I can tell you that it takes over 3 years(precisely 5yrs) to put in place a proper uninterrupted gas plan. This was exactly where OBJ got it wrong by building power plants without considering how they will be run. Now GEJ has added more power to the ones being generated and has put in place a gas plan. Kudos to him. But my question is how will this power be distributed? I know we can generate more than 10,000 MW of power but the to distribute it is a complete horse of another colour.

You are very correct, OBJ started building the Omotosho 2 in 2010 and only invited Goodluck to commission it on his behalf.

Profound silly members like you deserve lengthy bans on this forum, to avoid infecting others with your plague of stvpidity.

Even though I mentioned yr name in that comment, I actuali was not 'talking' to you. That was not d intent of dat post Nor was it my reason for posting the article from d very Company that built d Plant. 'Talking' to you is completely HOPELESS; I hv been on NL for sm time now, and already know that.
