The minister of power, Adebayo Adelabu, has assured Nigerians that his strategy to address epileptic power supply would be ready in about three weeks.

The minister disclosed this while featuring on Southwest Political Circuit, an interview programme on Fresh FM 105.9, Ibadan at the weekend.

Adelabu, who was sworn in along with 44 other ministers on Monday, August 21, disclosed that he had tasked a team of experts to assess the level of work done so far, the successes and gaps to enable him to draw his plan on how to resolve power outages in Nigeria.

He refrained from making specific promises on when the power supply will improve, saying he would address a press conference to unveil his plan for the ministry when the report of the team is ready in about three weeks’ time.

Adelabu allayed fears about cartels that may frustrate government efforts to solve electricity supply problems, saying the existence of cartels, if any, will not be an excuse for the government not to work for the well-being of citizens.

He assured Nigerians of improvements in electricity supply during his tenure, stressing that he will not be a failure.

He said his strategy will be the type that will be holistic which will necessitate working closely with the gas, justice and other relevant ministries and agencies.

He also assured that his administration will pay closer attention to the distribution aspect of the power supply chain to ensure that the amount of power generated and transmitted is well distributed to consumers, and at affordable cost.
