The recent comments by the Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Mr. Babatunde Fashola, on the rise in power generation to about 4,000 megawatts have been greeted with condemnation by individual electricity consumers as well as different consumer groups across the country.
According to them, the rise in power generation above 4,000MW has yet to translate into physical supply of electricity to households and businesses, as they argued that Nigeria's power situation was still very poor.
In Lagos, Cross River and Imo states, Federal Capital Territory, as well as other states across the country, the reactions of consumers with respect to power supply were the same: no electricity! They criticised the minister for stating that electricity generation had increased to 4,000MW, despite the fact that many parts of the country were still experiencing darkness and erratic power supply.
