Energy crisis: MAN bemoans power crisis, high cost of diesel

0 52

As Nigeria’s energy crisis continues to buffet businesses across the country, the Manufacturers Association of Nigeria (MAN) has urged the federal and state governments to rescue industries from the current epileptic power supply and hike in price of diesel across the country.

In a statement, the Chairman Kwara/Kogi states branch, Mr Bioku Rahmon, said there was the need to urgently rescue players and investors from an imminent orgy of unemployment and mass closure of companies currently looming in the country.


According to the statement, while the manufacturing industry was yet to fully recover from the monumental strangulations it suffered from the COVID-19 pandemic, the ongoing energy crisis is the exact antithesis of what the industry can’t contain at this time.

It explained that the National Grid-Supplied Electricity has recorded no improvement which is greatly affecting activities of MAN.
