Calabar’s 23 Megawatts Power Plant Suffers Setback 3 Days Into Test Transmission
Written by Smooth FM on August 20, 2019
Barely 72hours into the test running the 23 megawatts Calabar power plant, the supply of electricity from the plant has suffered a set back.
Residents have accused the state government of not being truthful about the true capacity of the plant claiming that it was not optimal as the governor had claimed.
At the beginning of the test running, Governor Ben Ayade said the plant will supply the metropolis and public utilities with power, adding that private business owners will also benefit from the supply including stylists, saloons and more.
In a statement, yesterday, the Chief Press Secretary to Governor Ayade, Mr Christian Ita said the cut in supply of power from the plant was caused by an inferno at the Marian market.
