Electricity crisis: Minister blames gas shortage for erratic power supply


The federal government has blamed its inability to reach the target of 5,000 megawatts of electricity generation as promised on a shortage of gas supply.

Minister of power, Abubakar Aliyu, said this at the end of the federal executive council (FEC) meeting presided over by President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

Aliyu said power generation had remained at around 4,000 megawatts due to gas constraints despite the government’s contract with the Nigerian Bulk Electricity Trading Plc.
