Getting used to Dumsor is just a futile journey—you simply cannot!. After the president’s assurance that this very canker that started knocking on our doors would end soon, I for one could not be any happier; but after last night and what I woke up to today, my deepest dread has been confirmed. Dumsor is certainly not going anywhere.
The intensified strike action by the Petroleum and Natural Gas Senior Staff Association of Nigeria, (PENGASSAN) is expected to see the complete shutdown of all activities regarding Nigeria’s oil and gas sector.
In a statement issued by the Power Ministry on Thursday, the Ministry revealed that the switch from gas to light crude oil to fuel the thermal plants has resulted in a stretch of the consumption rate to conserve the limited stock.
Already Ghana is facing a shortfall in the generation of power due to a cut in gas supply from Nigeria. At the back of all these the President during the Eid-ul-Fitr prayers assured that government does not plan declaring a load-shedding exercise.
