Bayo Adelabu, Minister of Power, has disclosed that the federal government is working towards achieving 20,000 megawatts of electricity by 2026 and 60,000MW by 2060.

Speaking during a visit to the National Control Centre of the Transmission Company of Nigeria in Osogbo, Osun state’s capital, Adelabu stated that the goal is not an ambitious target for Nigeria as the country can easily achieve it.

He said; “Like I told you, it’s an aspiration for Nigeria to have minimum of 60,000 megawatts of power by 2060; that is 60 gigawatts. And 2030 is the medium term objective of achieving 30,000 megawatts of power.

“But like I mentioned in one of the programmes I attended, in as much as we are on course in achieving this, given the experiences of other countries who are even able to achieve over 100,000 megawatts within 40 to 50 years, this is not an ambitious target for Nigeria, we can easily achieve it.

“We have target for transmission capacity, we have target for distribution capacity and we have target for power generation capacity. By 2026, we should be able to achieve 20,000 megawatts of electricity”.
