The Muhammadu Buhari administration has promised Nigerians change and it seems that this change is already being witnessed in the country’s power sector.
The improvement in the electricity situation was confirmed by the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Power, Godknows Igali during a meeting with Buhari on Wednesday, August 12, 2015.Mr Igali told the President that power generation in the country was 1,750 MW in 1999 and now peaked at 4,600 MW.
In May, just before Buhari assumed office, Igali said that power generation nationwide had dropped to 1,327MW, a situation which was worsened by the fuel crisis which was being witnessed at the time.
The President also pledged, during the meeting, to further improve electricity in the country adding that his administration had already identified the critical problems in Nigeria’s power sector and was taking appropriate actions to address them.
