Power generation in the country attained another height with the electricity national grid put at 4,700 megawatts as at Saturday night, with power supply rising to 18 hours in major cities.
The Permanent Secretary, Federal Ministry of Power, Dr. Godknows Igali, who made this known in an interview with Daily Trust on Sunday, said “Never in Nigerian history have we reached a new peak level as the one for yesterday (Saturday) which is 4,700mw. This is something that happened; power has improved all over Nigeria and people are getting 18 hours to 19hours daily supply”.
“We have never crossed more than 4,000mw in the past but it is happening now and that was yesterday night at about 9pm. The agenda of Mr President to deliver power to Nigerians is on course”, he added.
