The President of Taiwan, Tsai Ing-wen on Wednesday apologized for a nationwide power outage that struck the nation a day earlier. Power outage reportedly affected millions of households. The president vowed to review the island’s power grid in order to secure the system’s stability.
“I, on behalf of the administration, deeply apologize for the inconvenience and worry caused. It should not have happened,” Tsai said at a meeting of her ruling Democratic Progressive Party’s Central Standing Committee in Taipei.
 Massive blackouts that lasted several hours on Tuesday were caused by a malfunction at the Tatan Power Plant, in Taoyuan county, the largest natural gas facility in Taiwan.
 The malfunction, caused by human error, affected the supply of 4.65 million kilowatts of electricity and approximately 6.68 million households in 17 cities and counties on the main island of Taiwan. Tsai called for a comprehensive review of the country’s “fragile power supply systems.’’ The outage led to the resignation of Economics Affairs Minister, Lee Chih-Kung, on Tuesday. Premier Lin Chuan on Wednesday also ordered a probe to identify management problems in the state-run Taiwan Power Company and CPC Corporation Taiwan, a state-owned petroleum, natural gas, and gasoline company. CPC Taiwan Chairman, Chen Chin-te said at a news conference on Wednesday that the human error was caused by a contractor’s failure to follow standard operating procedures. Lin said the Taiwanese government would invite foreign specialists to help improve network stability and promote decentralized electricity generation.

NIGERIAN POLITICIAN DO NOT APOLOGIZE. NEVER. I HAVE NEVER HEARD OF IT SINCE MY BIRTH. I AM SURE THEY SWEAR AN OATH TO DIE THE DAY THEY WILL APOLOGIZE. CAN YOU IMAGINE SOMEONE LIKE JONATHAN STILL GALVANIZING ABOUT HIS GHOST ACHIEVEMENT, INSTEAD OF APOLOGIZING FOR WRONG HE'S DONE? WHAT ABOUT MORO WHO CAUSED THE DEATH OF SEVERAL APPLICANTS. DID HE APOLOGIZE? DID ABACHA'S FAMILY EVER APOLOGIZE FOR WRONG THEIR FATHER DID TO NIGERIANS? WHAT ABOUT IBB? OVER THEIR DEAD BODY. NO NIGERIAN POLITICIAN WILL SMELL THE GATE OF HEAVEN WITH THEIR UNCIVILIZED ATTITUDE. UNLESS THEY APOLOGIZE FOR THE WRONG THINGS THEY DID TO NIGERIANS BEFORE THEY DIE.
IF YOU KNOW OBJ, PLEASE URGE HIM TO APOLOGIZE TO NIGERIANS. HIS SECRET APOLOGIZE PRAYERS WILL NEVER BE HEARD BY GOD IF HE FAILED TO MAKE A PUBLIC APOLOGIZE. IF HE LIKE LET HIM PREACH REPENTANCE. REPENTANCE WITHOUT CONFESSING YOUR SINS TO THOSE YOU OWE IT, IS ZERO.
