The Minister of Power, Mr. Sale Mamman, has stated that the entire country currently enjoys between 18 to 24 hours of power every day.

Mamman, who spoke in an interview with the Nigerian Television Authority (NTA), maintained that the President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration had improved the infrastructure in the power system.

But, Mamman’s claim of significantly improved power supply was contrary to the position of most Nigerians as well as the Manufacturers Association of Nigeria (MAN) that recently listed unstable power supply as the number one challenge of doing business in the country.

The minister also disclosed that some power plants had been completed by the current administration and assured that power supply would further improve with the coming of Siemens AG, a German company into the system.

He said: “The President has come out with Presidential Power Initiative (PPI) to ensure that all infrastructures are improved. So, many substations are now in place across the country. We have improved the 330 KVA which is the highest voltage in the country.

“We have also improved the 132 substations. Kashimbilla has been completed which is 40mw. We have reached up to 70 per cent of Zungeru in Niger. One of the biggest projects, the Mambilla, which has been lingering for over 40 years, has commenced.

“We have finished the feasibility studies, the land and area survey and waiting for contractors to mobilise to site. We have improved our services. Before this government, they gave light for less than 10 hours a day, but today I can tell you that we give light from 18 to 24 hours in a day.”

The minister said that the government was trying to make electricity supply constant and affordable and emphasised that the country would reach energy generation of up to 112, 000mw per hour for the first time.

Mamman added: “Before now, we had less than 3,000mw of capacity generation but today we can generate up to 5,500mw capacity although we cannot transmit all due to some constraints.”

Mamman noted that the Siemens would align the entire sector to ensure that generation, transmission and distribution are properly coordinated.

President Muhammadu Buhari’s government says Nigerians now get 18 to 24 hours of electricity daily.

Minister of Power, Sale Mamman, said this in an interview with the Nigerian Television Authority (NTA) on Tuesday.


He stated that the Buhari administration had improved the power sector.

The minister said the federal government had upgraded the 330KVA, the highest voltage in the country.

He confirmed that 132 substations have been improved and the 40MW Kashimbilla station has been completed.


Mamman added that work on Zungeru station in Niger has reached 70 percent.

For Mambilla, the minister said the feasibility studies have been concluded and that contractors will soon begin construction.


“We have improved our services. Before this government, they gave light for less than 10 hours a day, but today I can tell you that we give light from 18 to 24 hours in a day.”


The minister said before now, Nigeria had less than 3,000mw of capacity generation.

“But today, we can generate up to 5,500mw capacity, although we cannot transmit all due to some constraints.”

Mamman assured that power supply would further improve after Siemens AG of Germany begins work in the sector.

The only refreshing aspect of Buhari’s presidency is the frankness of its dishonesty.

Because judgement against evil is not speedily executed, it is in the heart of men to wallow in sins...................
Even Discos can not boast of 15 hours in their stations. They themselves use generators to repair light.

I can confirm that this is true in Borno and Yobe. Sometimes, it's twenty four hours straight.

If you don't live in any of those two states, please don't quote me with your miserable ignorance. I have zero tolerance for wailers tonight.
