Fashola optimistic over 6,000Mw generation on Osinbajo’s N-Delta visits

The Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, says Nigeria’s current power generation will rise to 6,000 megawatts if the damaged oil pipelines in the Niger delta are restored, Channelsreports.
The minister was speaking at the monthly Power Sector and Stakeholders Meeting, which took place at the Olorunsogo injection sub-station of the Ibadan Electricity Distribution Company (IBEDC).
Mr Fashola added that he is confident that the acting president, Professor Yemi Osinbajo’s on-going consultations in the Niger Delta to stem the tide of pipeline vandalism would yield favourable results.
It would be recalled that the Niger Delta Avengers have claimed responsibility for attacks on oil and gas facilities in the region, gradually dipping the nation’s oil production which had hit 2.4 million barrels per day in the post-amnesty era.
