This work traces the causes of electricity problem in Nigeria to inadequate power generation. Though other militating factors such as faulty transmission and distribution systems were highlighted, the study insists that the major contributing factor to the epileptic electric power supply in the country is due to the inadequate power generation system currently in place. The study further proposes an integrated powers supply system whereby several sources of primary energy are harnessed and combined to give a robust generation system, as the solution
to the epileptic power supply in the country. The study further recommends that the reactivation and repairs of the countryâ€™s power transmission and distribution networks, is germane to the attainment of this goal.
