The Presidency yesterday, said it would deliver to Nigerians about 10000 megawatts of electricity by December this year, saying that President Muhammadu Buhari administration is on course with regard to its electioneering campaign promises.
Addressing journalists in Abuja, Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu, noted that the current tension in the country was because of competing interests, those who wanted to attain power at all costs. He said the problem is that the competition for power in the country has become fiercer.
The Presidency said that Nigeria has more power in terms of electricity than can be consumed by the DISCOs and that an excess of 2000MW electricity is not being evacuated. It further said that before the end of the year, 10000 megawatts will be achieved from the 2500 megawatts inherited.
