Fashola gives conditions for stable power supply

The Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, has stated the conditions that must be met for Nigerians to enjoy uninterrupted electricity supply.

The minister, who spoke to journalists in Kaduna at the end of the second edition of the National Council on Power on Thursday, said unless hoodlums stopped vandalising gas pipelines, the epileptic power supply would persist.

Stable electricity, according to him, will only be achievable when contractors execute power contracts properly.

Fashola noted that host communities of electricity assets must also understand that they must make sacrifices so that the nation could benefit.

This is just as the Kaduna State Governor, Mallam Nasir el-Rufai, called for proper restructuring of the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission to ensure viable power supply in the country.

The governor said unless that was done, potential private investors would continue to shy away from investing in the power sector.

El-Rufai lamented the poor regulatory policy framework in the power sector, noting that currently, the distribution companies were struggling under huge debts.



  1. Check through,they are all from same section of the country just to show their usual hatred.They are loading big big luxury buses now to migrate to state Fashola came from to fight for survival.

  2. Fashola is on his way down politically. It will benefit him and those of us who love him if he resigns. Fashola’s fg is to blame for unabated vandalism.

  3. There can never be constant electricity supply or any genuine development in Nigeiria as long as the present unitary system of government continues
    The plain fact is that Nigeria is damn too big for one black man to sit there in Abuja and govern over the entire nation effectively
    Solution;Devide the country into about six seperate nations or in the alternative let every state posses complete autonomy or better still let’s revert to the original four region system which really worked wonders
    With the present status quo,we are still joking
