Nigeria’s electricity generation has dropped to 1400 megawatts, the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN), has said.

According to a statement issued by Clement Ezeolisah, the company’s assistant general manager of public affairs, the plummet in power generation was due to some technical faults.


“The management of the system operation/ market operation of the Transmission Company of Nigeria, TCN, has alerted that electricity generation into the national grid has dropped to 1400MW as at Tuesday, 17th May, 2016,” the statement read.

“The downward trend of electricity generation is due to constraints in the thermal power stations which have prevented the generators from producing at optimal levels.

“However, it is noteworthy to report that all stakeholders are working assiduous to achieve improvements in the power supply deliverables.

“The attendant inconvenience as a result of low power generation is regretted.”

Nigeria reached a peak of 5000MW in December. Afterwards, it has been a free fall in power generation.
