UI spends about 180million naira on electricity yearly....
You can see why Govt doesn't care for education systems and they always go strike. Educational sector seems to be non productive and just spending huge money to run itself. All the graduates produced, not one has ever gone back to make the University able to run itself.

Talking about Germany, are you sure you know their Powr generation history?

Because, they don't have coal, gas or bright sunlight. You have it all yet ,you can't see it. Goto Germany and enjoy electricity. Don't let UAR deceive you. There is no pride is suffering and smiling. There is no pride in corruption, there is no pride in laziness, and no pride in tyrannical government

OAU gets light 24/7.
I remember my time in school then, when you're infront of a set and the light goes off, u need not to stand up, just relax and take a chil pill, cos the light will be restored almost immediately.
In fact, during the holidays, some students won't even like to travel home cos of the light they enjoy in school, and that's why you see the school authority switches off the light when the schl is on break to disperse the student from campus.

Outrageous! And Nigeria supply 27-7 Electricity to other countries, How can you give out what you don't have in excess?

The last time I travelled to Benin republic, after spending a week without a blink of light, I was l left dumbfounded. I thought it was only peculiar to the area I was living alone. I got to know that, they have been experiencing an uninterrupted power supply for more than a decade now. This is not confined to a specific area, it is a all or none effect including villages.

‘we presently pays 80 million Naira per month for electricity and additionally, over two million Naira per month on Diesel to power generators”, he said.’

The quote above from the original post is different from the title. The title says 80m per annum and write up says per year, which should we believe

Before you do your comparison, Is the power supply 24/7? Why spend that much on diesel if Phcn supply is stable

Hope you know #2m diesel is just about 8,000 ltrs? With the size of that institution despite the fact that only critical areas will be powered with gen when there's power loss, that volume can be gulped in less than 24 hours.

Yes, in OAU is a built 132/33kv Transmission substation with a direct 33kv line supply to the campus so they are always getting power supply except there is a general system failure or general load shedding in the power supply system.

You should ask questions if you don't know why. That's the only place you can be guaranteed 24/7 power supply for weeks without blinking. I am an alumnus so, I know better. The school generates its own power and power supply is no problem. Ask around, OAU na their papa.




I wish I can like this twice! That's the fact sir. There is justification for the amount, light is 24/7 on OAU campus. I don't know if there is any other campus in Nigerian that enjoy light as much as they do in OAU; the university generate its own light! with the stability of light on OAU campus, which i experienced myself, then the figure is not far from the truth.

80 million to do what ahbeg

It's possible. I know average size Estates paying like 20million naira.

Given the size of OAU, and if they are on priority power supply, they'll definitely pay up to that.

That money in a year is more than enough to start generating their own power. There's no power outage in covenant university because they generate power and also have a way to sell the units to occupants residing within their domain.
You mean they rarely experience power outage in CU? shocked

People don’t know this. And I think we are the problem.
We don’t want to pay cost reflective tariffs, yet want steady power. It doesn’t make sense

YABATECH spends about 8-12 million monthly. Judging by how small YABATECH is, OAU spends less on electricity.

Or OAU rarely has light

Thank you for your comparative analysis. Some people without any rational opposing thought will just be shouting lies lies lies.

To pay for electricity

I know as at 2014/I 5 we were paying close to 6mill per month as electricity bill.

Oau is a very big place and power supply on campus is very stable.

If anyone would want to steal, it shld be from buying of fuel wch seems to be very low compared to what is paid to PHCN that is to tell how constant power is in campus

On point.

It's relative. You can reach an agreement with the discos to pay more and get more power.

Invariably your public electricity bill will soar to the roofs while your diesel consumption goes down.

Am sorry for those saying it's a lie. If you've run big firm you won't be saying that.

You think say campus na your street for Akure.

I just tire. Thats the mindset of typical Nigerians. They will oppose an assertion with abuses without providing any basis for their own position.
