The Federal Government has assured Nigerians its target of generating 40,000 MW of power by year 2020 would be realised, with the expectation of more capacities from Mambilla, Zungeru large hydros, grid power from solar, wind and coal-to-power initiative.

The assurance was given by the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Power, Amb. Godknows Igali, while playing host to the team of the body of permanent secretaries in the civil service on peer review mission.

According to him, the review was meant to assist the creation of service-wide framework that would enable Ministries, Departments and Agencies,
MDAs, deliver on their mandates.

Igali identified the key element of this initiative as it would make the civil service more responsive and accountable to Nigerian people.

Igali said the bottomline of his ministry’s mandate was to provide
policy framework for the realisation of electricity for domestic and
industrial uses of Nigerians.

“For a long time, government has regulated the sector, the attending
problems have been with us for long, now the determination of
government is to change gear and allow the private sector to come in,”
he said.

Expressing optimism that Nigerians would soon experience uninterrupted
power, Igali said that although government had not privatised
transmission, it was encouraging the private sector to come into the
sub-sector, considering the huge investment required in the evacuation
of power.
