March 19, 2018//-The Energy Commission of Nigeria (ECN) on Monday predicted a growth of up to 100,000 megawatts electricity generation in the country by 2030.

Prof. Eli Bala, the ECN’s Director-General, disclosed this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja.

Bala said that the projection would be possible with an annual economic growth rate of 7 per cent and steady implementation of the national energy plan by the Federal Ministry of Power, Works and Housing.

“With the incremental power programme; every time, every year, we must have increment in power generation.

“We will also increase our capacity to transmit as well as the capacity to distribute.

“And also, you know our politicians want the economy to grow by double digit. If the economy is to grow by double digit, we need nothing less than 300 gigawatts by 2030.

“I think knowing what you want is a very important thing. If you don’t know what you want, you are going nowhere,” he said.
