Ministry Working to Restore Power
The Federal Ministry of Power has assured Nigerians of a strategic plan for mitigating future deterioration in power supply. The Minister of Power, Professor Chinedu Nebo, gave the assurance while reacting to the recent disruptions in power supply which affected many parts of the country.
In a statement by the Ministry, the Minister said despite the gains in power generation, a tropical rain storm has caused system collapse that resulted in power outage in the South-West and North-West zones, as well as Niamey in Niger Republic.
The statement said, while efforts are being made to restore normalcy in the affected areas within forty days, a technical investigative panel has been set up to unravel the recent power outages.
