Nigerians now enjoy 18 to 24 hours of electricity daily – Buhari govt


President Muhammadu Buhari’s government says Nigerians now get 18 to 24 hours of electricity daily.

Minister of Power, Sale Mamman, said this in an interview with the Nigerian Television Authority (NTA) on Tuesday.

He stated that the Buhari administration had improved the power sector.

The minister said the federal government had upgraded the 330KVA, the highest voltage in the country.

He confirmed that 132 substations have been improved and the 40MW Kashimbilla station has been completed.

Mamman added that work on Zungeru station in Niger has reached 70 percent.

For Mambilla, the minister said the feasibility studies have been concluded and that contractors will soon begin construction.

“We have improved our services. Before this government, they gave light for less than 10 hours a day, but today I can tell you that we give light from 18 to 24 hours in a day.”

The minister said before now, Nigeria had less than 3,000mw of capacity generation.

“But today, we can generate up to 5,500mw capacity, although we cannot transmit all due to some constraints.”

Mamman assured that power supply would further improve after Siemens AG of Germany begins work in the sector.
