BUY OR SELL OLD AND NEW CARS, PARTS, CAR MATERIALS AS CAR MART NG LAUNCH IN NIGERIA

For the second time this month, the power generation in the country at the weekend suffered another setback, following the shut down of six thermal power-generating stations. Consequently, power supply nosedived to 2,903.7 Mega Watts (MW), shedding over 1,087.6MW from a peak generation of 3,992.6MW reported by Nigerian Electricity System Operator (NESO) the previous day. Confirming this, the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) said there has been a drop in the electricity generated into the national grid by a total of 1,087.6MW of Power. A statement by TCN’s General Manager, Public Affairs, Mrs Ndidi Mbah, noted that the drop in electricity generated into the national grid resulted in load shedding nationwide. Noting that the load shedding was necessary to maintain stability of the grid, TCN added that gas pipeline rupture on June 15 and technical issues at the Shell gas wells occasioned the sharp drop of power generated on June 16. It explained that six thermal power-generating stations are currently unable to generate electricity and have therefore been shut down due to the Nigeria Gas Company (NGC) pipeline incident. The company listed the affected power stations to include Ihovbor, Azura, Omotosho gas, Geregu gas, Olorunsogo gas, Sapele and the Egbin power stations.

TCN said the six power generating thermal stations had managed to generate 60MW only on each of its units, losing a total of 211MW. The company also said Afam VI power station was shut down so that Shell Oil Company could resolve its gas well issues to enable it commence gas supply to Afam VI power station. The statement made available to LEADERSHIP yesterday noted: “With a total loss of 1,087.6MW into the grid, the transmission system has become quite fragile and TCN is working hard to avert a collapse of the system, by engaging in load-shedding.

How PMB Is Transforming Nigeria – Lai Mohammed
Mon, 18 Jun 2018

Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, at the weekend said President Muhammadu Buhari is steadily transforming Nigeria through innovative measures that are yielding positive results. In a keynote address he delivered at the 2018 ‘Africa Together Conference’ at the University of Cambridge in the United Kingdom, the minister listed investment in people, changing the business environment and building national infrastructure as some of the areas in which the Buhari administration has made a great impact. He said by focusing on education and skills acquisition, the administration is addressing the need to create opportunities for the country’s teeming youth population. “In my country, school enrolment is a challenge we face. And one of the main culprits is malnutrition. Government has stepped in: 8.2 million are being fed daily free meals in 45,000 schools. Not only does this increase attendance and provide children with a – in some case only – nutritious meal a day, it enhances learning efficacy in class and boosts cognitive development over the long term”, Mohammed noted. He said the Home-Grown School Feeding programme has yielded other results, including the employment of over 80,000 cooks and a ready-made market for food crop farmers. The minister said skill shortages in the labour pool are being addressed through several measures, including the four-pronged N-Power programme that is providing employment

[better-ads type=”banner” banner=”36″ campaign=”none” count=”2″ columns=”1″ orderby=”rand” order=”ASC” align=”center” show-caption=”1″][/better-ads]

and vocational training for graduates and others, access to loans for medium and small business as well as conditional cash transfers to the most vulnerable members of the society. He noted that the administration is also changing the business environment for good, focusing especially on removing the red tape that makes it cumbersome for business and stifles innovation. Mohammed stated: ”Much of our programme has honed-in on business reform. Nigeria has moved up 24 places on the World Bank Ranking of Ease of Doing Business index – putting it amongst the top 10 global reformers, along with Zambia, Malawi and Djibouti. The two areas we have prioritised are starting a business and access to credit.
