Nigeria’s power problem is transmission – Barth Nnaji

By on February 13, 2013

Former Minister of Power of Power, Professor Barth Nnaji said today that the country’s major problem in power supply is transmission where there had been some challenges in evacuating what is being generated.

Speaking after a meeting of the Niger Delta Power Holding Company at the presidential villa, Nnaji noted, however, that a lot was already happening, following series of meetings, with no exception to the one that was just concluded and “it is very likely that by the end of the year, there will be a remarkable improvement.

“With regards to generation, Nigeria is moving ahead by leaps and bounds. What we have as a problem that is very significant is the transmission, to be able to evacuate what is being generated and what we anticipate will be an addition to the grid towards the end of the year. We are working on that and today’s meeting is addressing some of those issues”, he added.
