The report, obtained by the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Tuesday, however, indicated that the electricity sector lost an estimated N817 million on February 13 due to constraints of gas and water supply to the generating companies.

On power sector reform activities, it indicated that the improvements in domestic gas supply resulted in lower gas constraints in Egbin, Transcorp, Omotosho I and II, Olorunsogo I and Ihovbor electricity supply stations.

According to the report, Afam VI is down by two turbines due to a circuit breaker problem at Alaoji T/S.
