A Lagos of generators
Failure of the country's power generation capacity due to years of neglect has resulted in most people purchasing small power generating sets like these ones to light up their homes and businesses. It is not uncommon to see mini sets like these lined up side by side at homes and business offices, shops and markets. People generally generate power for themselves.
The government has promised to do something about it but it only seems to be toying with the power industry as business investors have a field day importing generating sets into the country. There's a conspiracy theory that holds that vested interests are involved in the breakdown of public utilities like power so that they can make more money from importation.
