The Federal Minister of Power has blamed the current dip in electricity generation on the partial shutdown of the Oben gas plant.

A statement signed by spokesperson to the Honourable Minister of Power, Malam Isa Sanusi, noted that the plant was shutdown to address the repair of critical gas processing equipment.

“The incidence unfortunately occurred at a time when other power plants on other gas sources are undergoing planned maintenance and capacity testing,” the statement said.
