This wahala still followed me

A Nigerian lady simply identified as Damilola, has reacted to the news of possible power cuts in the United Kingdom where she currently resides.

The UK National Grid electricity system operator (ESO) on Monday, alerted residents of energy blackouts this winter, while asking that they unplug household appliances.

Following the news, Damilola said that the issue of national grid collapse which is a frequent occurrence in Nigeria has followed her abroad.

Quoting the report, she wrote; ”National grid wahala still followed me 😩”

Meanwhle, Nigeria’s Minister of State for Power, Goddy Jedy-Agba, earlier said the national grid has not collapsed this year.

Speaking on Thursday before the House of Representatives Committee on Power, he said the country has only experienced disruptions, not collapse. According to the Minister, the blackouts were caused by the disruption.

“So, please let us understand that we have not had any collapse this year, we have had disruptions and disruptions could lead to blackouts, a blackout is not a collapse.

“These ones we have had this year, in fact, four of them, but they have not been collapse, it is disruption. And disruptions have been as a result of the human factors, they could be increment factors, they could be political factors, it could be other factors.

“Gas supply has been a problem but we are tackling that already because we are discussing with NNPC and Nigerian Gas Corporation. We are coming to an agreement and gas is flowing systematically now to the generating companies and we are seeing a steady increment in generation,” the minister said.
