The Permanent Secretary of the Federal Ministry of Power, Godknows Igali has said that power supply is heading towards 5,000megawatts (mw) shortly.
Igali, who spoke at a renewable energy training for the Nigerian Electricity Management Services Agency (NEMSA) in Abuja, said: “We are discussing with the Senate. There are areas of misunderstanding and when things are not too clear, you dialogue and try to explain. We are closely with the Discos and we assure Nigerians that on short term, power supply will be reliable.”
Concerning the fixed charge tariff component, Igali said: “if we have to have a full power supply, there must be investments in critical infrastructures like meters and transformers. For that to happen, they must charge people.
He added that light has been stable now and power generation is heading towards 5,000megawatts.
