Electricity supply in Nigeria is fast improving as the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) announces all time national peak of 5,420.30MW transmitted through the national grid on August 18, 2020.
A statement posted on TCN’s Twitter said, “This is the highest ever recorded in the nation’s power sector to date, surpassing the previous peak of 5,377.80 recorded on the 1st of August 2020 by 42.50MW.”
According to the company, the Buhari-administration has taken keen interest in developing the West African nation’s power sector by piloting programmes and projects geared at improving the power sector, hence the latest development.
“The gradual but steady improvement in the electricity delivery in the nation’s power sector is attributable to keen interest of the current administration of President Mahammadu Buhari in piloting programmes and projects geared towards growing the power sector, as well as the collective effort of all power sector players in the value chain,” the company said.
“TCN is committed to working assiduously to further stabilise, rehabilitate and expand the grid and urge Nigerians to lend their support by safeguarding electricity installations nationwide,” the company appealed.
