Adebayo Adelabu, the Minister of Power, has called on Nigerians to refrain from using negative language towards electricity workers and instead encouraged citizens to offer their support. Adelabu made this plea on Friday during a visit to the Central Council of Ibadan Indigenes in the Oyo State capital, Ibadan.
He emphasized that his vision for the ministry involves utilizing the opportunities presented by the Nigerian Electricity Act of 2023 to enhance power supply and promote collaboration between states and the Federal Government.
The minister also highlighted his intention to establish strong partnerships between the private and public sectors while building upon the groundwork laid by his predecessors.
“The Electricity Act of 2023 has unbundled electricity generation in Nigeria. So, I will urge all state governors to accelerate the passage of the electricity bill in their states.
“More so, I want to promise that the Ikere Gorge dam generates 20 KVA hydroelectricity. Ikere Gorge Dam is one of the major dams constructed by the Ogun-Osun River Basin Development Authority to tap the water resources of the Ogun River basin,” he added.
Previously, Niyi Ajewole, the President-General of CCII, recommended that the minister collaborate with Governor Seyi Makinde to advance the development of Ibadanland and the overall well-being of the state.
