The nation faces the spectre of darkness as Electricity Generating Companies (GENCOs) issue warnings that their plants may shut down soon.
Joy Ogaji, the Executive Secretary, Association of Power Generation Companies (APGC), who issued the warning on Thursday did not state when the shutdown of the power plants would begin.
She said: “The shutdown will happen automatically because the machines are already giving us the signal that they are about to shut down. It could happen this month. It could happen next month, or even tomorrow. Nobody knows exactly when.
