Thoughts Lead To Appreciation
When will this nightmare of poor power supply in Nigeria end?
Economic activities are comatose, for few businesses can afford to operate on power generators.
Forget corporate life, our household life has been reduced to staring at the stabiliser silently praying for the electricity distribution to resume!
Private homes with a generator have drastically reduced their use of the power plant.
Not to mention, an energy generating set has a very finite number of hours it can run without malfunction.
The only consolation is the weather is very accommodating, and hence, temperature cool.
In Week 38 ending 1437 Ramadhan 25 ~ Thursday 2016 June 30, the power distribution went from dismal to abysmal.
There was a total of 3 days when the electricity output was zero hours.
Not to mention, we the consumers have to constantly choose between rainfall – and the accompanying mild atmosphere plus portable water – or energy supply.
Even the lightest drizzle from the clouds triggers a 48-hour interruption to power supply.
One cannot begin to comprehend the aversion of electricity distribution workers to rain.
Over the years, rarely, have we enjoyed both rain and energy usage.
This despite the current three-hour-a-day electricity ration for energy users in Sokoto State.
A most unimpressive state of affairs it is.
