How many power stations did GMB build? How many did he build as PTF chairman? How many did his boss, Abacha build? He has been at corridor of power for over 25years!!

What sort of silly and irrelevant question is this?

I am so excited that this is happening in my life time!


Constant power in my area!

Prompt explanation for temporary blackout!

Wow!!!!!!!!



We are getting almost steady power supply with just 4,000MW-5,000MW, but just imagine our situation as generation ramps up to 10,000 and beyond with new power plants coming up and even 4,000MW Mambila later on.


Steady power supply is not just about generating huge MWs, it's also about the people we put in charge to run them the system, their competence, dedication to duty, selfless service and patriotic spirit.

Nigerians gave the previous admin 16 years and $20 billion power fund to give us steady power supply, but they wasted the 16 years, looted the power funds and left us in darkness, but this admin is cleaning up that mess in less than 3 years without $20 billion power fund.


I see the light at the end of the tunnel..

Oh good. I was surprised that IKEDC had deviated from our normal timetable. Thought they were doing "payback" after giving us power for over 36hrs non-stop from New Year's eve into the morning of the 2nd.

Light was restored around 5.30am. Updates like this are good. We need a lot more improvement though. And better metering.

These are the sadist, insane, irrelevant, bitter, disgruntled and anti-Nigerian rants one must always ignore and sidestep.


They rejoice and celebrate @ bad news, butt return sadness, pain, and sorrow at good news.

yea you have the right to hide under your roof and comment trash. A lot of bad has happened between 1st and 3rd of January and for commenting on it,it means people are sadist and are celebrating bad news.
From my observation, even if pmb pull a gun and kill all your family members, you will still worship him.
Pmb is nothing but a failure and nothing good has come to Nigeria ever since he became president. The only thing he had successfully done was to blame others for his incompetence.

I pray I am wrong.



I smell sabotage,enemies of Nigeria and progress at work?


We had constant petrol,January to November,December,they broke it..

We had constant crude oil output,Niger Delta Avengers
Terrorists broke it. This is a major contributor to our present economic predicament.Many Mumus had forgotten this,blaming Buhari

They have issued another threat and ultimatum,based on the $1billion to fight insecurity.

We've had constant power at least in more areas, better than before.They want to break it?


Thunder fire the enemies of progress!!!!!!!!

Obviously, yours is a sad case of guilty conscience because I wasn't talking to you, I did not quote or mention your name and if you think the cap fits your head, by all means, wear it with pride because you sound like one of the sadists I was talking about.

I just dey pity the man.

Discos, Gencos and Transmission company will hit him from both sides.

National Assembly and gas suppliers will hit him from the top.

The citizenry is not providing any respite and psychological encouragement. They are also hitting him from below at every opportunity. Saboteurs are also hitting him from below.

In fact, the guy dey see pepper from all sides. I just hope he won't breakdown in his attempt to please everybody.

Contrary to people abusing him, the guy sure has a resilient brain. His work load is just too enormous.

... As if you begged him to apply, or the job description was never made known to him!

It's amusing to see people who are not happy the light was restored grin

Grudgingly they know there had been a drastic improvement....but are ashamed to admit it


Ever since Nigeria came into existence, no government has ever given such level info about anything (even this government lies all the time)
