Kainji Hydroelectric Dam has experienced a sudden burst which could lead to blackouts in some Nigerian states, Daily Times gathered.

The embankments of the Kainji dam, one of Nigeria’s hydro-power stations caved in after the opening of the four spillway gates to free surplus water caused by heavy rains.

On Sunday, the management, Mainstream Energy Solution Limited, opened the points but discovered that the dam was impounding more water than it should.

“We opened the 4 spillway gates because of the water pressure. Now, it is hitting the embarkment and will continue to expand if not reinforced. The embarkment is falling, rocks are falling into the water”, an official disclosed the information

The dam, which produces hydroelectric power, is located in the New Bussa town of Borgu Local Government Area of Niger State.

Authorities and the firm have shut down the hydro-power station for repairs and will take about 760MW of electricity off the national grid.

Abdulrasaq Jakada, a top official of the Emir of Borgu’s palace said the monarch has been informed of the development.

Our power infrastructure has really suffered in the hands of these PDP quacks who bought them at ridiculously discounted prices and still see electricity as a privilege and not a right.

You increase electricity tariffs when you know there is no constant power supply.

If you need good news, stay away from Nigerian news or switch off your phone.

The latter is better cos there is no good news anywhere, even outside Nigeria

After the increase in electricity tariff?
Owu ashi we die here. We the masses have suffered a lot in this country. The leaders we vote in only go to enrich themselves and their unborn generation. God we are in your hands.
