“Working with the private sector, we shall generate and distribute electricity in Enugu by the end of 2026. We will build transmitter lines and handle the distribution of power.

“People can come here to buy and distribute power. Our desire is to ensure we have a steady power supply to businesses and households in Enugu.”
