Just A Reminder: About 2 years ago, the security agencies issued a warning that we all took lightly, though widely reported in the media...
2) The agencies warned that as #BokoHaram insurgents and their camps are being decimated, some of the insurgents on the rub will head to the Southern parts of the country, some of them using COWS as cover to wreck mayhem. Can you folks @Google up this news item???
3) The Army and other security forces have made claims of over running #BokoHaram amd their territories in the North. But we are yet to ask: Where has the fleeing insurgents gone to?

-Gencos partially owned by FG and private investors
-#NBET that owns the national grid is 100% FG owned
-Transmission Coy of Nigeria or TCN is owned by FG
-DISCOS partially owned by FG and private investors

-Gas companies ship gas overseas at competitive prices for $$ revenues
-NBET sells some power to neighbouring countries for rev for FG
-Thousands of MW generated for NBET cannt be taken up by TCN
