The Minister of Power, Prof. Chinedu Nebo, said power generation in the country had risen to more than 4000 megawatts as at Tuesday.
This is contained in a statement issued by Mrs Kande Daniel, Special Assistant (Media) to the Minister on Wednesday in Abuja.
It explained that the milestone was achieved due the concerted efforts to reduce system collapse and the general improvement in service delivery, among others.
The statement emphasised that the country’s generation capacity picked up, getting to 4105.90mw as at Tuesday.
The statement said that Lagos, as industrial nerve centre, got the highest with 985 mw while Abuja got 410.80mw.
It, however, added that the generation kept fluctuating and was 3,795.30 mw as at Wednesday morning
The statement maintained that the average power generation stood at 3,800 mw contrary to insinuations that power had dropped below 2,000 mw.
It also observed that the general view since last week suggested that many households now enjoyed enhanced power supply unlike what was obtainable in the recent past when vandalism was on the high.
The statement, however, re-affirms Federal Government’s resolve to consolidate efforts at removing all bottlenecks to sufficiency in power supply.
It called for more patience and understanding from Nigerians and assured that the emerging electricity market would stabilise and that power supply would improve steadily.
