A civil rights advocacy group, Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria (HURIWA), says that the electricity power system collapse occurring twice in the national electricity grid within a space of 48 hours this week shows that the final collapse of the All Progressives Congress (APC) government was imminent or that internal moles who were planted by haters of Nigeria working inside of the APC-led federal government were out to destabilize Nigeria to make way for a military takeover.

HURIWA, in a statement on Thursday by its National Coordinator, Comrade Emmanuel Onwubiko, said it was unfortunate that despite the campaign promises of the APC in 2015 to provide steady power supply for Nigerians, the government of President Muhammadu Buhari has failed woefully and compounded the country’s electricity woes.

The group said despite the billions of funds spent on the power sector by the Buhari government, Nigerians continue to wallow in epileptic power supply and total darkness.

HURIWA lamented that the social and economic crises at the moment are compounded by the twin evils of petrol and electricity power scarcity happening simultaneously, thus crippling the national Economy in what is clearly the agenda of anarchists and saboteurs embedded inside of APC who are working hard to destroy whatever legacies President Muhammadu Buhari wants to bequeath before exiting honorably on May 29th 2023.

HURIWA therefore charged President Buhari to launch an internal manhunt to capture, decapitate and degrade the internal moles and saboteurs inside his political family.

Recall that the national transmission grid crashed on Tuesday, just hours after it had been restored after collapsing on Monday. It was the third time this year and the sixth in the past year.

This latest collapse occurred about a week after the Transmission Company of Nigeria blamed the generation companies for not generating enough power it could wheel to the distribution companies nationwide.

For about 48 hours, the nation was in total blackout till the Minister of Power, Abubakar Aliyu, on Wednesday, said the collapsed power grid was back in shape and efforts were underway to restore power on the grid.

Commenting on the unfortunate occurrence, HURIWA said: “Since 2015 that the APC has been in power, billions of dollars have been invested in the power sector yet this government still rehashed the same old reasons for the constant collapse of the national grid. It is plain that the APC deceived Nigerians and there is a lot of corruption in the electricity sector.

“It is embarrassing for a country that has 209.5 trillion cubic feet of gas reserves and is the eighth largest producer in the world to suffer power outages on account of lack of gas to power its thermal power plants. The current 1,080MW from solar and 1,936MW from hydro are infinitesimal, given the country’s potential. A mix of energy sources, including wind, solar, hydro, thermal and coal should be explored by the Nigerian Gas Company.

“As usual, the APC government and President Buhari have been making excuses and transferring responsibility to the previous government of the Peoples Democratic Party but Nigerians know certainly that only failures blame others for personal defeat. Aside, seven years is enough time to fix the power sector challenges.”
