Nigeria Unfolds 13-Point Agenda for Power Sector Revival

Nigeria’s Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Mr Babatunde Fashola, on Monday unfolded a 13-point agenda to drive home government’s efforts towards enhancing power supply in the country.

Fashola said in Abuja during his maiden meeting with power generation (GENCOs) distribution (DISCOs) and transmission (TCNs) companies and other stakeholders that the agenda was drawn up to ensure effective monitoring of the sector.

The minister said the agenda involves continuous public engagement on tariff collection, debts, power generation, maintenance, ancillary services, dispatch orders and discipline.

Others areas include gas requirement and constraints, transmission constraints, 33KV load offtake, imbalances-locations of excess, overload safety, service quality, new captive and embedded generation, franchising and other issues relevant to the growth of the sector.

Fashola said that President Muhammadu Buhari has approved that all stakeholders in the sector should hold monthly meetings on issues concerning the industry.

He said that the meeting would be rotated among the various GENCOs, DISCOs, TCN and other stakeholders across the country and all decisions reached in such meetings would be binding on all the stakeholders.
