Electricity: FG announces new approach to stable electricity supply

We cannot solve the 50-year-old power problem in one year – Adelabu tells Nigerians


The Minister of Power, Adebayo Adelabu, has said that President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s administration cannot resolve the 50-year-old challenges of the power sector in one year.

Adelabu disclosed this in an interview on Channels TV on Thursday.

He said the government was making consistent and step-by-step progress towards resolving the challenges in the power sector.

“The problems we have are problems that have accumulated over more than 50 years. They won't go away in a year, but we have consistently made gradual progress,” he said.

His comments come amid recent electricity rate increases for Band A customers.

The tariff increase caused dissatisfaction and anger among Nigerians, especially organized labor unions, who called for its repeal.
