Although you might not have power supply while you are reading this, the Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola would like you to know that it is not because there isn’t enough power.

In fact, power generation, according to Fashola has increased by 100% within a space of three years.

Fashola, who disclosed this while playing host to members of the Federation of Construction Industry in his office on Monday in Abuja, specifically stated that power generation increased from 4,000 megawatts in 2015 to 8,000MW in 2018.

But Fashola’s figures may not be entirely correct as the figures he reeled out were different from the latest power generation figures obtained from the Transmission Company of Nigeria on Monday.

The TCN figures show that peak generation attained on February 3, 2019, was 4,976MW against Fashola’s 8,000MW.

It also stated that the peak average energy ever sent out was 4,557MWH/H and that this was recorded on February 2, 2016.

TCN further stated that the peak power generation ever attained was 5,222MW, adding that the figure was recorded on December 18, 2017.

But Fashola, in a statement issued by the FMPWH on Monday, told his guests that Nigerians now spent less on fueling of generators and plants because of frequent and improved electricity supply nationwide.
