Written by News Room on February 19, 2022
The Minister of Power, Mr. Abubakar Aliyu, says the Federal Government is willing to partner with investors in the power sector to improve power supply in the country.
The Information Officer, Press and Public Relations, Ministry of Power, Mr. Mathew Osumanyi Dan’asabe, said this in a statement.
Aliyu made this known while receiving the Ambassador of Turkey to Nigeria, Mr. Hidayet Bayratar, in company of two other delegates in office in Abuja.
He said that President Muhammadu Buhari’s desire towards the power sector was to ensure that the electricity supply industry is owned by both government and the private sectors.
According to him, Nigeria and Turkey relationship is a long-standing one which culminated in the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between Turkey and Nigeria in Oct 2021 for mutual benefits.
Aliyu told the ambassador that various interventions were being put into the power sector of the country, describing the distribution aspect of the power sector in the country as an area worth investing.
