690 containers of electricity equipment abandoned at port now recovered – Fashola

Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Raji Fashola, on Thursday, said that the ministry recovered 690 out of 800 containers of electricity equipment abandoned at the port for 10 years by previous administrations.

Fashola said this at the commissioning of 2×100MVA – 132/33kv power transformers at Ejigbo Transmission Substation in Lagos. Fashola said that the present administration inherited 800 containers for power equipment left in the port.

He said; “President Muhammadu Buhari gave us the approval to use it and we have recovered 690. This is part of the equipment you are seeing going into substations that Transmission Company of Nigeria’s engineers used to increase substation’s capacity.” Fashola also said that transmission expansion work was going on in 90 locations across the country.
