Shiroro Power Plant Is Working – Minister

Minister of Power, Professor Bart Nnaji said it is not true that the Shiroro Power Plant was shut down Thursday by protesting workers of the Power Holding Company of Nigeria.

His media aide, Ogbuagu Anikwe said in a statement that on that day, the plant was generating 550MW out of its designed capacity of 600MW.

“In fact, Shiroro is doing better than the 760MW Kainji hydro power plant built in 1968 but had not been overhauled until now,” he said.

Workers of the power company on Thursday reportedly shut down the Shiroro Plant while protesting the federal government’s refusal to pay their severance pay in the eventual transfer of the assets of PHCN to their new owners.
