Electricity in nigeria can be measured with ratio that is 1:2 or 3:1 or it can be rated with percentage .
A short survey around the settlements shows their is a huge pull back in the power industry in nigeria .
Moreso , when we visit the villages and rural settlement, it is quite obvious electricity is abominable word there . That is they rate electricity up to 0/100 . But in the city the opposite is just the case for a lot of people some Amy rate 95% though . But GOI with the majority it is clear that the power in Nigeria is goimg down.
One thing that makes a lot of nigerians angry is the high tariff that the power companies imppinds on the customers. A small village that had had light 4 times in a month may face a bill of 1 million naira . Also aftrr collecting all this money they won’t imptive I’m their service .
Now we have to look at the causes of these pull back from the power sector angle .
1 The power sector is so huge that it can’t actually monitor all it’s activities thus giving room for manipulations by wicked people .
2 The equipment used by their workers may be outdated or not of standard quality thus aftter working on a project ,it may not be stable thus is shatters .
Now to the individual zone or angle this are the causes .
1 Vandalizing electric cables is just the order of the day in the country . This is a devilish act and ought to stop no matter how broke we were we ought not to try it .
Now in summary of all of these ,we ought to use our heads in working we should hlvet meters and obey simple electricity laws and regulations .
We should also try to be honest and endeavor to monitor our works very well . Imagine Nigeria giving electricity to Ghana for a long time where as it’s citizens are suffering.
