Speaking with Nigerian NewsDirect, he said “the business is running but we have a lot of challenges which one of them is tariff that is not cost reflective.
If it is cost reflective we will be able to balance up and able to carry out new development which is not cost reflective if it is cost reflective at least we will be able to balance up and able to carry out new development”
He said effort is on the way to improve the region megawatts to 1250mw which presently stands at 400mw per day adding that said the company is committed towards quality service delivery.
He said, “Averagely we get 400mw per day, but some time it’s 200mw but the best we have done is 500mw in the past two to three years averagely put we get 400mw”.
