It’s Shameful We Are Still Generating 4.5GW Electricity- Tinubu

President Bola Tinubu has expressed disappointment over generation of 4.5 gigawatts electricity, considering the country’s substantial size.

Tinubu said this while he was speaking at the inauguration of the 31-member Presidential Economic Coordination Council in the Presidential Villa Abuja’s Council Chamber.

He highlighted the need for innovative solutions to the country’s economic challenges, stressing the importance of public-private partnerships in driving economic reforms.
According to him: ‘’We have the challenge of energy security in Nigeria. We need to work together to improve our oil and gas sector, and we must also increase electricity generation and distribution throughout the country.
“We are determined to do that with your cooperation, collaboration, and recommendations. As a nation, it is so shameful that we are still generating 4.5GW of electricity.

‘’We must increase our oil production to two (2) million barrels per day within the next few months and we are determined to remove all entry barriers to investments in the energy sector while enhancing competitiveness.”
