ELECTRICITY: Nigeria's Electricty Is Being Sabortaged by Tdhforreal(m): 3:03am On May 30, 2015
I mean, it's as lucid as possible to discerning minds that our power supply in this country is being sabotaged by certain individuals (Cabal) for their own selfish interests.
Just before the swearing in, Power supply was at an unprecedented low and a few hours to the ceremony, all of a sudden there is constant ELECTRICITY.
Now, question is, where did the extra mega watts come from in such a short space of time?
Could the cabals ( Diesel, generator, subsidy) be behind our collective sufferings? People like Atiku have major shares in Mikano, would he genuinely be interested in constant electricity?? Or the likes of Otedola be happy in a drop in Diesel consumption??
I feel it's important for we Nigerians to truly identify the real enemies of the nation if we are ever interested in making progress. We need stop dissipating our energy attacking the Federal Govt. alone.

My brother. Change is here.

Change is change. Whether for better or for worse.

With Buhari surrounding himself with the likes of ZUMA, Atiku, Otedola, etc I wonder if this change is for our better.

I sit and watch from afar.

There is no constant electricity anywhere. If it's so in your area that means other places are in darkness.
Atiku and Otedola are not the problem with electricity and fuel supply but CORRUPTION.

Brotherly, something is Def not right. Light and darkness make strange bedfellows, where one is found the other can't exist

Good question. What is your answer to that?
Is corruption a human being?

There are over 15,000 cases of pipeline vandalism costing the FG approximately N21bn in 6weeks. Who is responsible? People extremely influential in this Buharis administration. The Danjuma's.and Ameachi's of this world. God help us all.

Brov! Every major player in The Oil industry is fucknn us all real hard. You name it; from Forte oil, MRS, Capital Oil, Oando, Conoil.etc are all corrupt....
Subsidy fraud you name it. Adenuga, Otedola, Dantata, wale tinuhu, Ifeanyi uba of TAN and many more anonymous cunts! So yes! Corruption has a human face

I wish president Buhari will gathergrin enough will to silence public power saboteurs/ vested interests.
Pipeline vandalism and estimated electric billing method should be a thing of the past.

I don't know where you reside,for you to conclude that there is now constant light in all the states of the federation. In my area,throughout yesterday,we had just about 15mins of power supply.

The last time we saw light here in Benin was 3pm on 28th May.

Any President or Minister that promises Nigerians constant power in 1year does not understand thé problems facing the Power sector.

The whole system of power generation, Transmission and destribution is disfunctional and archaique.
When other countries are already generating power from nuclear energy we are still banking on Kainji dam.
Our Power transmission lines were those built in the 1970s. The quality of thé cables have so deteriorated that the power losses experienced during transmission is so massive. For those that dnt understand what a transmission line is: u see those high tension cables? They are the transmission lines.

What about thé distribution system? Those electric poles that with little wind and rainfall everything collapses? Each time there is heavy rainfall there is always cut in power supply. Some of our transformers have been in use since in the 1970s and 80s. The fuse go bad every now and then due to overload.Have u ever asked y is it houses far from transformers usually experience low current? Answer, losses in the distribution system as well, after experiencing losses in the transmission system. Losses can be as high 25% of total power generated! Plus your transmission system has a maximum capacity it can carry. So if power generation improves drastically and d transmission lines remain same that will amount to excess energy being generated while d populace will nt feel the impact cos the current transmission lines dnt have enough capacity to transmit all the energy generated.

Lets face the reality. Steady power supply is nt in sight for now. It will take us atleast 10yrs of massive investment in electricity infrastructures before we can experience something close to steady power supply.
