Total Blackout As Shiroro Power Plant Suffers System Collapse by Ezyp(m): 1:58am On May 25, 2015
The already bad state of electricity supply across the country was made worse on Sunday following of a system collapse at the Shiroro Hydro-electric Power Plant in Niger State.

The Shiroro plant has a power generating capacity of 600 megawatts and began operation in 1990.

Our correspondent gathered that the system collapse at the plant happened at about 4.10pm on Sunday.

The system collapse resulted in massive load shedding as allocations to electricity distribution companies from the national grid was seriously reduced.

It was learnt that the power allocation to the Abuja Electricity Distribution Company was reduced from about 450MW to 15MW.

Officials of the AEDC stated that the company was left with only 15MW at about 5.05pm, a development that made it to supply electricity to only sensitive installations within the Central Business District of Abuja.

On Friday, the Permanent Secretary, Federal Ministry of Power, Ambassador Godknows Igali, had said power generation nationwide had dropped from about 4,800MW to 1,327MW, leading to the massive load shedding across the country.

In a bulk SMS sent by the AEDC to its customers in the Federal Capital Territory, Kogi, Nasarawa and Niger states, the firm explained that the cause of the huge drop in power supply in the region was due to the heavy drop in allocation to it from the national power grid.

The drop, it said, was “from about 450MW daily to less than 200MW in recent times. In fact, our allocation for Friday, May 22, 2015 was 145MW, while both Saturday and Sunday, May 23 and 24, 2015, was 115.6MW.

“And the situation has been worsened by the system collapse at Shiroro this evening, which brought our supply down to 15MW.”

Nigerians have started reaping the fruit of their decision. When Nigerians were being fed propaganda from the stables of APC and without supporting the then govt........ they forgot that Nigeria is a wrongly structured country.

If only Nigerians stood behind GEJ on terrorism and against these oil marketers. ... it would have been a different story today.

Unfortunately the Nigerdelta is keen on reciprocating the same unsupportive gesture to Buhari like the north did to GEJ.

Gas pipelines have been exploding in the ND and power generation has dropped from 4000+MW to 1300MW..... who suffers the scarcity?

Just for fall in crude prices, salaries cannot be paid. If the crude pipelines start exploding. .. then shall the reality hit Nigerians.

Because of the APC noise on the incoming government, oil marketers have refused import of products for fear of uncertainty by incoming govt....... who suffers the scarcity?

Investors have withdrawn their capital for fear of uncertainty in the incoming govt and driven by the APC noise post election further driving up exchange rates..... guess who suffers increase in price of goods?

Heating up the polity like APC does not help either Nigerians nor the incoming govt. The creek is warming up...... thanks to the noise from the incoming government. 

As a matter of urgency, APC must stop the noise and Buhari desperately needs to stop acting like he's bringing a war to the outgoing govt.

Unfortunately the future looks bleak but Nigerians were warned anyway. Only regional system of government can save Nigeria otherwise watch Nigeria crumble before our very eyes.

Even God can never let it be well with those who put us into this mess. This is so unbearable.

Some fools will still say Jonathan is their hero. Yaba Left is where they should be.

Jonathan is not only a loser, he is a very wicked fellow. He's a devil who always hides under that cunningly gentle face.

I have no doubt in my mind someone is deliberately punishing Nigerians for the choice they made.

Come rain come shine, you've been rejected.

What a sore loser. He even forgets even his die hard fans are suffering the same fate. With this level of wickedness, he still has the gumption to go from church to church genuflecting before whoever cares to watch him, trying to pass himself off as a saint.
