• Mrs Seun Olagunju, the Director, Public Affairs, Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN), says the nation’s power generation capacity has increased from 3,657 megawatts to 4,600 megawatts.
  • Olagunju attributed the development to the resumption of operations at the Egbin Power Station early this week, which bounced back to 813 megawatts one week after it recorded zero generation due to workers’ crisis at the plant.
  • The Egbin power plant accounts for roughly 20 percent of all power generated in the country. With the workers’ crisis incident, close 1,000mw was lost, leading to reduced supply to electricity users.
  • Olagunju noted that the power generation started increasing early this week and stood at 4,600 megawatts as of October 16.
