The Federal Government has said the current dip in electricity generation is as a result of the partial shutdown of the Oben gas plant.

It said the partial shutdown was to help address the repair of critical gas processing equipment.

According to a statement issued by the Special Adviser to the Minister of Power, on Media Affairs, Malam Isa Sanusi, said the incidence unfortunately occurred at a time when other power plants on other gas sources are undergoing planned maintenance and capacity testing.

He said Seplat Energy Plc has mobilized equipment, material and personnel to site with a view to expediting the restoration of normal gas supply to the affected power plants.

“We have been assured that the repair work would be concluded this weekend and normalcy will be restored.

“While pleading with electricity consumers with the current state of supply, we wish to assure the general public that efforts are being made for a sustained improvement of supply across the country” he said.
