The Power Generation Report by the Ministry of Power, Works and Housing, which showed this, revealed that at least other seven out of the 27 power plants in Nigeria suffered the same fate.

The Trans Amadi Gas Turbine (GT) 1 and 2 were out due to line constraints while GT 3 was due to a fault. GT 4 tripped on generator differential lockout. Also, ASCO Power plant GT1 was shut down due to leakage in the furnace, while Ihovbor Nigerian National Integrated Power Project (NIPP) GT 1 was out due to gas constraint. GT2 was also out due to a malfunctioning gas regulating valve. While Alaoji NIPP Gas Turbine 1, 2, and 4 tripped due to low gas pressure, GT3 was shut down due to generator air inlet filter trouble.

Afam IV and V Gas Power Plant GT13-16 were out on blade failure. GT17 tripped on loss of excitation. GT18 was out on inspection and maintenance, while GT19 and 20 are awaiting major overhaul.
