Nigerian govt pledges stable power supply during yuletide season

The Federal Government has assured Nigerians of improved power supply during and after the yuletide season, saying the President Muhammadu Buhari administration is working to ensure stable electricity supply in the country.

Minister of State for Power, Goddy Jedy-Agba gave the assurance yesterday during a tour of facilities at the Azura Power Plant in Ihovbor Village, Edo State.

While expressing improvement in the power sector, Jedy-Agba said power supply has improved compared to what it used to be in the past.

He cautioned against vandalism of power infrastructure to complement government’s efforts in providing uninterrupted power supply in the country.

Speaking, Managing Director, Azura Power West Africa, Edu Okeke disclosed during the tour of facilities that adequate power supply was possible in the country following Africa50’s investment in the 461MW Azura-Edo Independent Power Project (IPP.)

He said the investment in the country’s power sector complements the earlier investment by Africa50, a Pan-African investment platform in the Senegalese Tobene Power Plant, which joined the Azura fleet recently.

Meanwhile, Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki has congratulated President Muhammadu Buhari on his 77th birthday, saying his contribution to Nigeria’s development was commendable.

In a statement issued in Benin City yesterday, he congratulated the President on adding another year, noting that the impact he has made since assuming office would entrench his legacies in the hearts of Nigerians. Theguardianng
