The Transmission Company of Nigeria, TCN, has debunked claims by Babatunde Fasola, minister of Power, Works and Housing, that Nigeria’s power generation has improved by 100%, is fraudulent.
While Fashola claimed that that there has been a 100% rise from 4000 megawatts in 2015 to 8000 megawatts in 2018, TCN, in its latest report, said the highest peak figure of power ever generated is 5,222 megawatts.
Both the minister and TCN gave their statistics on Monday in Abuja. The minister insisted during the visit of the Federation of Construction Industry to his office, that Nigerians now spend less on fuelling of generators and plants because of frequent and improved electricity supply nationwide.
He explained that the government was committed to renewing and expanding the Nigerian economy through the provision of critical infrastructure.
But TCN showed that peak generation attained on February 3, 2019, was 4,976MW, adding that the peak average energy ever sent out was 4,557MWH/H and that this was recorded on February 2, 2016.
TCN further stated that the peak power generation ever attained was 5,222MW, adding that the figure was recorded on December 18, 2017.
