Nigeria’s power ministry budgets N168m for generators, fuel

As the Federal Ministry of Power, Works and Housing strives to improve the country’s power supply, it is also making budgetary proposals for the purchase, maintenance and fuelling of generators at its headquarters and various agencies.

An analysis of the 2019 budget proposal of the FMPWH that was recently submitted by President Muhammadu Buhari to the National Assembly showed that the ministry and its agencies had proposed to spend N167.96m this year on the purchase, maintenance and fuelling of generators/plants.

Nigeria currently generates and distributes an average of 4,000 megawatts of electricity and the sector is still suffering from a serious liquidity crisis despite being privatised since November 1, 2013.
