Addressing Nigerians early today as the country celebrate “Democracy Day”, President Muhmmadu Buhari has dropped the hint that Nigeria power generation capability has now exceeded 7,500 MW which he claimed is the highest of its kind ever recorded in the country since December 2017.
The president also said the use of generators has been reduced due to growing stable power supply in Nigeria.
In his long speech address to Nigerians, the president said :
“In the area of power generation, Nigerians from all parts of the country continue to report better power supply and less use of generators. This underscores the effectiveness of the methodical plan to deliver incremental and uninterrupted power supply to our homes, markets, offices and factories.”
“The country achieved 5, 222.3 MW representing the highest peak of power generated onto the national grid and delivered to customers in December, 2017. With new facilities, repairs and rehabilitations by Government and private investors, generation capability now exceeds 7,500 MW.”
