Power generation in the country has dropped to 1, 580 MW in the last three days resulting in blackout presently being experienced in some parts of the country. Senior officials at Power Holding Company of Nigeria, PHCN, attribute the decrease in power generation to a partial system collapse at the Shiroro dam in Niger state and the activities of gas pipeline vandals in the Niger Delta region.

Residents of Lagos state have also been thrown into darkness in that last 4 days following a strike action by members of staff of the Ikeja Electricity distribution company who are protesting the disengagement of 400 of their colleagues who failed a competence test carried out by their management.
