Nigeria: Power Generation Rises By 25 MW

In a new development recorded on Tuesday, December 18, power generation in the country has reached a new high of 4,374.1 megawatts surpassing the 4,349.7Megawatts recorded a day before.

A statement issued by the Transmission Company of Nigeria's Assistant General Manager (Public Affairs), Mr. Dave Ifabiyi, said the new generation peak is in line with the resolve of President Goodluck Jonathan's administration to improve the power supply situation in the country.

He said the company was determined to achieve a generation target of 4,500MW by the end of December, noting that the generation, distribution and transmission companies are determined to achieve this milestone, even as gas supply continues to improve.

"The transmission grid is quite robust and will continue to efficiently move power generated to distribution companies nationwide," the statement said.
