Abuja - Power generation in the country had risen to more than 4000 megawatts.
The Minister of Power, Prof. Chinedu Nebo, said the milestone was achieved due the concerted efforts to reduce system collapse and the general improvement in service delivery, among others.
He noted that Lagos as industrial nerve centre, got the highest with 985 mw while Abuja got 410.80mw.
He, however, added that the generation kept fluctuating and was 3 795.30 mw as at Thursday morning
He maintained that the average power generation stood at 3 800 mw contrary to insinuations that power had dropped below 2 000 mw.
He said the general view since last week suggested that many households now enjoyed enhanced power supply unlike what was obtainable in the recent past when vandalism was on the high.
He called for more patience and understanding from Nigerians and assured that the emerging electricity market would stabilise and that power supply would improve steadily.
