Power: Nigeria requires over 100,000MW to end the crisis – Nnaji

A former Minister of Power, Prof. Barth Nnaji, has proffered a solution to the incessant collapse of the power grids in the country.

Nnaji said Nigeria needs over 100, 000 megawatts of power to address the persistent power problem in the country.

According to a report by the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), Nnaji said this while addressing reporters on Friday in Enugu on the state of the power sector in the country.

“Nigeria is a country of more than 200 million people and needs more than 100,000 megawatts of power and infrastructures,” he said.

Nnaji attributed the problem in the sector to the supply value chain, adding that the country had challenges in the generation, transmission, and distribution of power.

He also said all these had made it impossible to make adequate power supply available to the users.
