Paper Title:
A Statistical Study of 33kV Distribution System Problems in Some States of Nigeria
  Abstract

There are several reasons why public power supply policy in Nigeria needs to be reviewed. This paper points out the justification based on the statistical inferences drawn from an elaborate nested experimental design model fitted to a 3-year historical life-data of power failure obtained from an electricity power agency in Nigeria. Our results suggest that energy crisis is at its threshold in Nigeria and it is therefore advocated that adequate and appropriate steps need to be taken to stave off the declining trend.
