Power generation has risen just above the 3,000MW mark for days due to the decisions taken at the monthly power sector meetings. This is despite incessant attacks by militants and operation of vandals across the country.
Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola said this today at the eighth stakeholders meeting which held in Maiduguri, Borno. He noted that the meeting has helped to bring some stability back to the sector.
“In spite of the gas outages that we have, for the last few days now, we are settling at just a little over 3,000mw daily which is some progress from a setback that we have recorded consistently because of vandalism,” Fashola said.
In a statement by the Ministry’s spokesperson, Hakeem Bello, Fashola said the task of power supply would be greatly enhanced if government and the suppliers knew the number of people that needed power for proper planning for generation and supply.
He said his ministry plans to undertake an audit exercise for households, occupants, and quantity of power consumption to design a comprehensive service delivery across the country.
