Fashola Says Power Stable at 3,000 Megawatts for Days


The minister of Power, Works and Housing has said power generation has been stable at over 3,000 megawatts (mw) for days due to decisions taken at the monthly power sector meetings.

Fashola, who said this at the eighth meeting which held in Maiduguri on Monday, noted that the meeting has helped bring some order back to the sector.

He declared: “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.”

 In a statement by Hakeem Bello, his spokesman, the minister said the task of power supply would be greatly enhanced if government and the suppliers knew the number of people that needed power so that there would be proper plan for generation and supply.

He called for the audit of households, the occupants and the quantity of power consumption as that would help government to plan a comprehensive service delivery across the country.

The ministry, Fashola said, planned to do an audit during the next National Census exercise and appealed to state governments to do same to enhance electricity supply, using such information.
