Why Power Supply Has Increased in Over 2 Years ― Fashola
The Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola on Thursday, insisted that Nigerians now enjoy better power supply compared to 2015.
He said this is because in over two years and since the privatisation of power assets, there has been increasing in both generation, transmission and distribution capacities.
Fashola stated this in Abuja at the inauguration of the new Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC) Chairman, Professor James Momoh at the Ministry’s headquarters.
He noted that although the experience may not be evenly spread, the increase in generation, transmission and distribution was a clear progress.
The Minister, however, noted that despite the improvements more still needs to be done to boost power supply to all Nigerians.
He said: “What matters now is what people are experiencing. Between 2015 and now, many of them will tell you that their experience is better, they will tell that they have power for longer hours compared to before.
