Business Nigeria: Lagos State to Start Generating Own Electricity



The Lagos state government has finalized plans to start generating its own electricity.

Lagos State Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode, on Wednesday announced that the state government aims to attain 24-hour power supply through generation of 3000 megawatts of electricity by 2022.

“The reason why we embarked on this initiative is that we believe strongly that if the power problem is solved in Lagos, it is technically solved in the whole of the country and so because Lagos has more or less tested a solution that works, we can scale this up and also address it on a national scale,” said Mr. Ambode.
