“One by one, all the stakeholders from GENCOs, TCN and DISCOs will work to restore supply to the levels they were before the pipeline damage.”

Showcasing progress made in the sector,  Fashola said: “I will like to highlight the progress and milestones on our journey for incremental power which reassures us that we are on the right path and inspires us to continue with more belief. “Those milestones are represented by generated power, which has gone up to 7000 MW in 2017 from 3,000  MW in May 2015, transmission capacity at 6900MW in 2017 from  about 5,000  MW in May 2015 and peak distribution now averaging 5,000 MW in 2017 from 2,690MW in 2015.” “That said,  I will like to thank all of you for your contributions towards these milestones. The reason I thank you is that you are impacting on the lives of Nigerians, you are saving them money and changing their lifestyles for the better.

“They tell me that their consumption of diesel and petrol to run generators for power has reduced and the hours they run their generators has gradually reduced.  This is the result of incremental power and we must get more of it. They also tell me that they are now monitoring how they use power and are turning off appliances that are not needed.
