Lagos State Governor, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode, has disclosed the advanced stage at which the government’s plan to generate constant electricity is, for residents of the state in 2018.
Ambode added that the state government had already come up with measures to short-circuit power generation, transmission and distribution in a bid to ensure there was “24/7 power supply to residents.”

Ambode revealed this at an interactive session with members of the business community and informal sector, a statement by the governor’s Chief Press Secretary, Habib Haruna, said on Sunday.
“Presently, we have less than 1,000MW in Lagos and the fundamental issues remain with generation, transmission and distribution. Transmission is still owned primarily by the Federal Government. But in Lagos State, we have become creative and we have done Independent Power Project through which we were able to generate 47.5MW which was distributed short-circuiting transmission.”
