The minister of power, works and housing, Babatunde Fashola has said that there is an ongoing plan from the federal government to tackle the problem of power through sustainable power development and supply.

 He said the government will no longer depend on gas for power as he slammed the Niger Delta militants for being responsible for the problem in the power sector through their unpatriotic activities in the country

In his words, “Thinking is what the Kukah Centre brings, and thinking through about the apparent solution brings out a better solution.

“The optimum power we have produced in 66 years is 5,074 megawatts and that happened on February 2, 2016. It is clear that 5,000 megawatts of power is not enough for the country and that is why our first step is getting more power and that is the method of incremental power as the first phase.

“Second phase is steady power and it means everybody gets enough power, and whether we get enough power or not, we need data and census, which is necessary in order to know what power each household needs.

“The third phase, uninterrupted power, is how we can use energy, being energy conscious we are, energy conserving we are and our lifestyle towards energy matters.”
