The country is having to shed a total of 300 Mega Watts of power owing to the destruction of gas pipelines from Nigeria.

“There is currently a generation shortfall because we are not getting a supply of electricity from Nigeria. Sahara Oil, our supplier from Nigeria have said they will restore supply by the 8 of July. And if that does not happen, then we will release a load shedding timetable.”

The Volta River Authority uses only two kinds of fuel-Bonny light crude or Brass, and government has already paid for Sahara  oil to deliver the fuel on the 23 of June.
