The Federal Government, under president Muhammadu Buhari, has said that Nigeria now enjoys 18-24 hours of electric power daily.
Engr. Sale Mammad, who is the Minister for Power, made this known during his appearance on National Television Authority (NTA) on Tuesday.
He held that his principal, President Muhammadu Buhari, has done very well to improve the power sector, more than his predecessors ever did.
Furthermore, the Minister said that work at the Zungeru Power Station in Niger State has reached 70% completion.
“We have improved our services. Before this government, they gave light for less than 10 hours a day, but today I can tell you that we give light from 18 to 24 hours in a day,” the Minister said.
“But today, we can generate up to 5,500mw capacity, although we cannot transmit all due to some constraints.”
