The average daily supply of electricity across the country may have dropped to an all time low of 4.5 hours per day, leaving many businesses grounded while households are left without any supply, The Sun reports.
Latest statistics from Independent Energy Watch Initiative indicate that the Yola Electricity Distribution Company, covering Adamawa, Borno and Taraba states, supplied a paltry 4.5 hours on June 24, while energy sent out was 0.27 mega watts (mw). This abysmal power supply was followed by Ibadan Disco covering Oyo, Ogun, Osun, and Kwara states with 5.3 hours of daily power supply for the period under review with 0.32mw as energy sent out.
The states were trailed by Eko Electricity Distribution Company covering Lagos South with 6.3 hours of daily power supply and 0.71mw as energy sent out. The next in line was Kano Disco, covering Kano, Jigawa and Katsina with 7.1 hours and 0.34 as energy sent out. Ironically, Ikeja Disco with the highest number of industrial customers covering Lagos North was only able to muscle out 8.8 hours of power supply and 0.55mw as energy sent out.
