Fashola Gives Conditions For Stable Power Supply

The Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, has stated the conditions that must be met for Nigerians to enjoy uninterrupted electricity supply.

The minister, who spoke to journalists in Kaduna at the end of the second edition of the National Council on Power on Thursday, said unless hoodlums stopped vandalising gas pipelines, the epileptic power supply would persist.

Stable electricity, according to him, will only be achievable when contractors execute power contracts properly.

Fashola noted that host communities of electricity assets must also understand that they must make sacrifices so that the nation could benefit.

This is just as the Kaduna State Governor, Mallam Nasir el-Rufai, called for proper restructuring of the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission to ensure viable power supply in the country.

The governor said unless that was done, potential private investors would continue to shy away from investing in the power sector.

El-Rufai lamented the poor regulatory policy framework in the power sector, noting that currently, the distribution companies were struggling under huge debts.
