Speaking in an interview with NTA on Tuesday, Mamman said the President Buhari led administration had improved the infrastructure in the power system, and had upgraded the 330KVA which is the highest voltage in the country. .

He said, “We have also improved the 132 substations. Kashimbilla has been completed which is 40mw. We have reached up to 70 per cent of Zungeru in Niger. One of the biggest projects, the Mambilla, which has been lingering for over 40 years, has commenced.

“We have improved our services. Before this government, they gave light for less than 10 hours a day, but today I can tell you that we give light from 18 to 24 hours in a day.”

He added that, “Before now, we had less than 3,000mw of capacity generation but today we can generate up to 5,500mw capacity although we cannot transmit all due to some constraints.

Mamman assured that power supply would further improve after Siemens AG of Germany begins work in the sector.
