Federal Govt Gives States Autonomy To Produce Power

THE Federal Government has given State governments autonomy to produce own power so as to ensure improved power supply in the country.




It said this is because nothing in the Electricity Power Sector Reforms Act EPSRA deter States from doing such.

Babatunde Fashola said interested States must obtain the necessary permit and licenses from the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC) depending on the areas it wants to invest in.

His words; “Let me also make this point clear today, I have heard statements made that State governments should be allowed to produce their own power.

“The truth is that there is nothing in the Electricity Power Sector Reforms Act that stops any state from doing so, so the only thing they must do is to get NERC’s permit and licenses depending on whatever categorisation of investment they want to do whether it is distribution or generation.

“So, let me be clear about that, I will support any state that wants to get involved in generating and also distributing power under its own arrangement.”

Yes! That's the way developed countries work. I live few miles from my friend and we have separate police department and separate power providers. Way to go!

He should really be serious in that distribution aspect, as some states generate power, but cannot distribute, it will really be welcome development if they're cleared to.
Ngwanu over to the states!
