The Federal Government is set to improve electricity supply in the country with the completion of 47 transmission projects nationwide.

This was disclosed by Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola during a recent appearance on Channels TV.

“There is a plan to complete 47 transmission projects in this year’s budget and I believe we can do it even if the budget is passed tomorrow,” he said according to The Nation.

“In the last four weeks, we have approved a framework to start licensing about 14 solar power projects. Cumulative power from all is about 1,286megawatts (Mw). But they will be different companies, some have 100Mw and some have 250Mw and some have 50Mw.

“But all these are being processed to come on stream, because that is the real solution, to get more power on and, in the process, give relief. And so in that sense, I am optimistic that we will turn that corner,” he added.

Fashola had earlier said that his family is also suffering the effects of the poor electricity situation in the country.
