In his opening remarks, the minister said: “This meeting was summoned to address the current electricity situation in the country which we see not happy about.

“We must find a solution so that Nigerians will have electricity. I want us to have the patience to talk to each other, not blaming each other.”

Aliyu maintained that the Nigerian government will not relent in its effort to make sure that improvements in the power sector are sustained and built upon so that the electricity supply improves across Nigeria.

He added that current challenges must be addressed.

The meeting, according to the minister, will find solutions that will ensure prompt resolution of all the problems affecting power generation right now in Nigeria.
