The federal government has directed the power investors and major stakeholders in the sector to improve on the supply of electricity by June this year.

The order which came from the President was relayed to the press at the inauguration of the Board Chairman of the Transmission Company of Nigeria, Mr Ibrahim Waziri in Abuja by the Minister of Power, Professor Chinedu Nebo.

The Minister of Power said, “I wish to charge all the principal sector players here today to commit to ensuring that power supply to our customers is significantly and visibly improved by June this year has directed by Mr President.

He also said, “Much is expected of us all and the entire nation is waiting for us. Government will no longer tolerate any excuse of non-performance from any of the sector players from both the ministry, and particularly our new private sector partners.”

Speaking about the power reform Nebo added, “Nigerians must, I repeat, must enjoy the dividends of the reform programme and none will be allowed to frustrate this vision of Mr President”.
