The minister of power, works and housing, Babatunde Fashola, has claimed that some States in the country now enjoy 24hours uninterrupted power supply.
Fashola made this claim while Speaking in an interview with channels TV.
The former Governor of Lagos State said:
“Sitting down here, I can tell you some states that have almost 24 hours – Kebbi, Yobe. Some have five, some have 10 and there are still outages.
“The generation capacity is also increasing. It is a value chain where the distribution is not matching up the available power and from time to time, there are slacks.
“The short term goals are incremental power and stable supply in some places.”
Fashola further disclosed that the federal government is ready to invest N72 billion to install transformers and expand electricity distribution.
