Lagos Set To Get 24-Hours Power Supply in 2018- Ambode

Lagos State Governor Mr Akinwumi Ambode had disclosed that plans are under way to generate constants electricity power supply for inhabitants of the state come 2018.

Ambode  noted that the state government had already devised strategies to short-circuit power generation, transmission and distribution to ensure there was “ constants power supply to residents.”

He made this disclosure at a recent interactive session with members of the business community and informal sector, a statement by the governor’s Chief Press Secretary, Habib Haruna, said on Sunday.

“Presently, we have less than 1,000MW in Lagos and the fundamental issues remain with generation, transmission and distribution. Transmission is still owned primarily by the Federal Government. But in Lagos State, we have become creative and we have done Independent Power Project through which we were able to generate 47.5MW which was distributed short-circuiting transmission.

“So, if it works, does it look like a template we can now use to get power freedom or what we call power security? If we say we are the fifth largest economy in Africa and we are not in control of how power is generated in an economy that wants to move from fifth to third, then something is wrong.

“So, what we are saying is, let’s find a way to short-circuit them within the ambit of the law,” the governor was quoted as saying.


  1. I hope so.
    But.....can Nigeria ever get the power situation right? Especially because the elite are the ones frustrating every effort by the govt to make it right.

  2. Wow,that's great.Ambode is working,Lagos is moving.I pray the plan succeeds in Jesus name.
