The Federal Government on Thursday disclosed that the strike embarked upon by workers of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) has cut off gas supply to key power plants.

Minister of Power, Chinedu Nebo who said this in a statement in Abuja called on workers to call off their industrial action according to Daily Independent.

He said, the strike has cut off gas supply to major power stations including Egbin, AES, Olorunsogo, Geregu and Sapele.

He regretted the “adverse effect of this development on power supply at a time when Government had recorded substantial progress in solving the gas problem, thereby raising peak generation in recent weeks to an average of 4,500mw, with a spinning reserve of about 300 mw.

“Reports from across the country had also, within the period, indicated noticeable improvement in the quantity and quality of power supply to homes and businesses,” he added.

He therefore, decried the current setback arising from the oil and gas workers’ action, curtailing supply of gas to power stations, and reducing power generation.
