The Federal Government has said that nine power plants were currently shut down, as this was why power outages had persisted recently across the country.

Minister of Power, Sale Mamman, said this in series of tweets via his official Twitter handle, while his ministry also disclosed this in a statement issued in Abuja by his media aide, Aaron Artimas.

The ministry said the power outages had been bedeviling Nigeria, as it explained reasons for the problem.

In his tweets, Mamman named the plants to include Sapele, Afam, Olonrunsogo, Omotosho, Ibom, Egbin, Alaoji and Ihovbor.

He said the Jebba Power Plant was shut down for annual maintenance.

The ministry stated that the unfortunate development had drastically affected power generation, thus effectively minimising the national grid.

Mamman expressed regret over the situation and offered apology to all affected Nigerians on the inconveniences the power shortages were causing.
