‘Power Generation Set To Hit 11,000MW’- President Buhari Reveals


Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Muhammadu Buhari, has said plans are underway for his administration to raise Nigeria’s power generation to 11,000MW by 2023.

This was contained in the President’s manifesto for reelection in 2019 titled: ‘Next Level’ which was analysed on Tuesday by DAILY POST in Abuja.

Recall that Buhari had in his 2018 new year message announced that his administration has achieved 7000MW of on-grid power generation.

However, a breakdown of President Buhari’s plan for the power sector indicates that he intends to add another 4000MW in four years, if reelected next year.

According to the document, the APC flagbearer would pursue a minimum 1000MW incremental power capacity on the grid each year till 2023.

Additionally, the manifesto captures a plan by the President to expand the country’s distribution capacity which is currently estimated at 5000MW.

Under the off-grid power projects, President Buhari pledged to energise nine additional universities with uninterrupted solar power supply when the first phase involving 37 universities have been completed.

Also, he is promising to stimulate, through off-grid energy, activities in 300 markets apart from Sura, Ariaria, and 14 other markets currently benefiting from a combination of solar and wind power initiatives.
