Determined to distribute unused 2,000MW of electricity, the Federal Government on Tuesday met with the Manufacturers Association of Nigeria (MAN) to discuss workable ways to distribute the unused power. The Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Mr Babatunde Fashola, made this known to newsmen during the meeting with MAN in Abuja.

He said that both parties would work out possibility of increasing not only access to power for business but also to improve the quantity and quality of power supply to the manufacturing sector. He said the story of Nigeria’s manufacturing and production sector had been characterised by lack of infrastructure such as electricity.

The minister said the forum was to evolve measures on how to distribute the 2,000MW unused power in the National Grid.
