The Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Mr. Babatunde Fashola, says some states in Nigeria are now enjoying 24 hours electricity supply.
He stated this on Wednesday during an interview on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily.
When asked on his plans to address the nation’s problems associated with power, the Minister identified distribution level as the main challenge of power.
“We set out short term goals in my ministry. First, we have delivered on incremental power and we will continue to increase.
“We are hopeful to see that at this next level of obligation, what we want to see is more of incremental power and stable power in some places. I can tell you of some states that have stable power today.
“Kebbi, Yobe are examples. Some have five, some have eight (hours). And even all of these is still a little fragile and we need to consolidate. The issues at the distribution end of metering, outdated assets. Some of these assets, when I went to Aba for example, the substation was installed in 1960 and there was expansion after that,” he added.
Meanwhile, Shehu Sani, the Senator representing Kaduna Central has reacted to Mr. Babatunde Fashola’s comment.
