The Minister of Power, Adebayo Adelabu, has opened up on why electricity supply recently reduced nationwide.

Adelabu blamed gas constraints on thermal generating companies for the drop in power supply nationwide.

This was disclosed in a statement on Friday by Bolaji Tunji, special adviser, strategic communication and media relation to the Minister of Power.

He said the federal government is working to ensure all outstanding payments are made to power generation companies to resolve the declining electricity supply nationwide.

“This is mainly due to a decreased gas supply to generation companies. This situation has led to a lower level of energy supplied to load centres, affecting the electricity supply to distribution companies.

“We acknowledge the unsustainable situation and expect a positive turnaround immediately.”
