The Federal Government is set to develop an Integrated National Electricity Policy, and Strategic Implementation Plan, as mandated by the Electricity Act 2023.
The Minister of Power, Adebayo Adelabu, made this known in Abuja at the Nigeria Electricity Management Services Agency “Round Table” for legislature, judiciary and other stakeholders.
According to him, the ministry of power is working assiduously with the National Council on Power to send the policy to the Federal Executive Council (FEC) for approval.
“Be rest assured that the ministry under my leadership is dedicated to leading the engagements with the state governments to maintain standards across the board to ensure that desirable reforms are undertaken and guided against regulatory rupture, ‘’ he said.
It would be recalled that President Bola Tinubu in June passed the Electricity Bill, which is now an Act empowering states, companies and individuals to generate, transmit and distribute electricity.
