The Federal Government has restated its commitment to ensuring the generation of 20,000MW of power by 2014.
Vice-President Namadi Sambo made the government’s position known during a joint meeting of the Niger Delta Power Holding Company and National Council on Privatisation at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
Sambo commended the management of the NDPHC for successfully completing the building of 10 National Integrated Power Project plants across the country.
