Reps sommons Egbin Power management over power generation

By Energy Worth

House of Representatives Committee on Privatisation and Commercialisation has summoned the management of Egbin Power to a meeting in Abuja for explanations on challenges plaguing power generation in the country.

Power generation dropped recently to below 3,000 megawatts, and the biggest hit of the power stations in the country was Egbin.

The drop came few days after the Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Mr Babatunde Fashola, hinted that power generation was well above 5,000 megawatts

In the letter of summon dated May 9, 2018 sighted by Energy Worth, the meeting is slated for Thursday, May 17, 2018 by 12:00 noon at the Committee Room 0.28 New Building, House of Representatives, National Assembly, Abuja.

The letter stated that the meeting was to address issues found to be affecting optimum performance of Privatised Power Generation Companies with a view to resolving them in the interest of the parties and the nation in general.

The management of Egbin Power is expected to prepare a concise written brief on the issue to the committee.
