President Muhammadu Buhari has reportedly summoned the Minister of power, Abubakar Aliyu to the presidential villa in Abuja.
The President will reportedly have a discussion with the minister over the erratic power supply witnessed across the country.
Garba Shehu, senior special assistant to the President on media and publicity who made the announcement, also said Buhari called for a meeting with Governor Hope Uzodimma of Imo state and Doyin Salami, his chief economic adviser.
Recall that some days ago, President Muhammadu Buhari’s Personal Assistant on Digital and New Media, Bashir Ahmad, has reacted to the collapse of the National Grid.
Ahmad insisted that power has improved under Buhari’s administration.
He said that the system collapse on the National Grid was caused by a weak transmission system that was inherited from the previous administration.
In a tweet, Ahmad compared the national grid collapse Nigeria is experiencing now to what used to be the case.
He pointed out that Nigeria experienced 42 grid collapses in 2010, but experienced only four collapses in 2020.
Ahmad wrote: “When we’re ready to have this convo, we’ll know that the power sector has improved under this administration.
“Grid collapse is usually caused by a weak transmission system (inherited). Intensive work being done to fix that is obvious. We had 4 collapses in 2020, we recorded 42 in 2010.”
