Power generation in Nigeria hits 4,600MW

The Federal Government yesterday said its power generation has improved to 4,600 megawatts (Mw) from about 3,000Mw.

The Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Power, Godknows Igali briefed State House correspondents after presenting activities of the ministry to President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

He said: “We are doing over 4600Mw of power on the grid and we can do better. But then this is a big improvement from about 3,000 Mw.

“Other times when we attain 4,000Mw, because of pipeline disruptions we go down to about 2000Mw. We’ve consistently in the past two months been over 4,500Mw, now reaching close to 4,700Mw.”

However, he noted that distribution of power remains a challenge because that’s where customers feel it most. We are working with a lot of the Discos very closely, tracking them, to make sure that what is needed at the distribution level is done.
