The Edo State Governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, has said over $1.9million has been lost in the last five days as a result of the disruption of gas supply to the Ossiomo Power Plant in Ologbo, Ikpoba-Okha Local Government Area of the state.
The Ossiomo Power project is a brainchild of the Governor Godwin Obaseki-led state government to make the state self-sustaining in power supply.
The 95MW facility was birthed through a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) with Ossiomo Power Company and powers government offices and hospitals, as well as streetlights in Benin metropolis.
Emotan Gardens Estate, Edo Tech Park, Edo Creative Hub, among others, all enjoy 22-24 hours of stable electricity supply daily. The power is being extended to the Edo Enterprise and Industrial Park to spur industrialization.
