The total power generation declined to 3,978.5MW as of 6.00am on Monday from 4,297MW on Sunday. It further fell to 2,616MW, following the heavy rainfall in Lagos which damaged some power facilities and worsened supply in parts of the state.

While its been confirmed that electricity generation has fallen to 2,616MW, six power plants, namely Alaoji NIPP, Olorunsogo NIPP and Ihovbor NIPP, Gbarain NIPP, AES IPP and ASCO IPP, were idle as of 6.00am on Tuesday. A total generation capacity of 2,443.2MW was said to be unavailable as of 6.00am on Tuesday as a result of line constraints (544MW), low load demand by electricity distribution companies (1,749.2MW) and water management (150MW).
