Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola and Delta State Governor, Ifeanyi Okowa, have commissioned a one hundred and fifteen megawatts gas turbine in Ughelli, Delta state, bringing the installed capacity to six hundred and twenty megawatts from the one hundred and sixty megawatts.
Fashola who commended Governor Okowa for his commitment to peace in the Niger Delta, observed that the increase in power generation was a clear sign that the privatization of the power sector had started yielding benefits for Nigerians.
Governor Okowa however called for collaborative efforts in the power sector to ensure that generated power translates into electricity in the homes of Nigerians.
