Federal government to boost electricity in Nigeria

Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that the federal government was set to boost electricity supply in the country.

The Nigerian government paid over $120 million to offset some of the debts owed to gas firms to enhance electricity generation. The director of Decade of Gas Secretariat, Ed. Ubong, confirmed this at the 7th edition of the Nigeria International Energy Summit (NIES 2024) in Abuja.

He said the government also worked on a scheme to curtail system failures. He noted that the total debt owed to power-generating companies (GenCos) was about N1.3 trillion, of which 60% is owed to gas suppliers.
