ALAGOGO007:
For many years now, Nigeria has been facing an extreme electricity shortage. This deficiency is multi-faceted, with causes that are financial, structural, and sociopolitical, none of which are mutually exclusive. Nigeria’s power sector has high energy losses from generation to billing, a low collection rate and low access to electricity by the population. There is insufficient cash generation because of these inefficiencies and the power sector is consequently reliant on fuel subsidies and funding of capital projects by the government.

At present only 10 % of rural households and 40% of the country’s total population have access to electricity. Power supply difficulties cripple the agricultural, industrial and mining sectors and impede the Nigeria's ongoing economic development. The energy supply crisis is complex, stems from a variety of issues and has been ongoing for decades.

As of December 2013, the total installed or nameplate capacity (maximum capacity) of the power plants was 6,953 MW. Available capacity was 4,598 MW. Actual average generation was 3,800 MW. As of December 2014, the total installed capacity of the power plants was 7,445 MW.

The question is, are we willing to pay for stable electricity?

Some places already have it. You jist need to grow to that level.

For the common man. It wont happen anyyime soon. But the common man can create his own solar power. Just like we all dug boreholes and forgot about the Nigerian water corporation.

Never as Nigerians.

Rather as separate, disparate nation states.

The South Is Superior.

This Is The Way.

MANNABBQGRILLS:
Same Electricity that 16 BILLION DOLLARS was spent on by a former past president.

It is a shame!

And in saner climes many people grow up never witnessing what power failure is all their lives.
They only see it on TV'S!

We only pray we get there soon as a nation.
Destroyed Foundation!

Re: As Nigerians, Can We Ever Witness Stable Electricity In Our Life Time? by chibjohn(m): 3:51pm On Jan 10
To be frank with you and as someone working in the power industry. I don't see that happening in a very long time.
Re: As Nigerians, Can We Ever Witness Stable Electricity In Our Life Time? by Midas01: 3:52pm On Jan 10
My area in PH experience 24 hrs electricity. They take it sometimes but usually bring it back within 5 mins. But I really do hope the entirety of Nigeria can enjoy 24/7 electricity at all times.

The problem is not importation of generators.
The problem is you and I.

Can we be as diligent, transparent and fear God in a little position you are?

The solution to the question lies within us not what we profess with our mouth.

Osun is thebcity of lonely nights.
No heavy industries to consume the power.
The state is also lucky enough house one of the largest power lines in the country.
