Nigeria’s Power Minister, Dr. Barth Nnaji said the Federal Government has ordered 24 hours supply of electricity to Lagos State given the economic position it occupies in Nigeria.
According to the Minister,
“We have resolved that Lagos will be getting more power round the clock, except if there is a hitch to supply. I think much attention should be given to the latest power supply rather than the number of generation. This a great achievement on the part of the government.”
In addition the Minister also noted that power supply in Nigeria has increased by over 40%. See our post about it here.
He also revealed that Nigeria’s power supply will hit 9,000MW by December 2012. See our post about it here.
These are very optimistic predictions for Nigeria’s power sector and CP-Africa hopes they come to pass.
