Now we talk about several companies. There are six different power generating companies, which are also known as Gencos. They are products of the last Federal Government privatization initiatives. The companies’ representatives said that they are going to shut down the electricity generation as soon as it is needed if 156 billion naira ($485 million) debt owed from authorities’ agency is not paid.

They also added that different commercial banks were already recalling some loans made to them. The Federal Authorities has given receivable 186.7 billion naira, but as of July, generating companies told they received only 28.6 percent of its April invoice.

The national currency has lost about 40 percent of its value as in June Nigeria destroyed its 197 naira 16-month-old peg to the dollar.

In February the authorities have decided to increase tariffs by 45 percent, but the different generating companies answered that the tariff reviews can not keep pace with rising cost, which is now worsened by the last court order about the reversing increasing of tariffs. All small scale businesses and potential foreign investors emphasize the nation’s chronic power shortages, naming it ‘one of the greatest constraints’ on country investment and the Africa’s largest economy growth.
