Electricity: Aso Villa becomes eligible customer

By - - [ ]


In furtherance of the Next Level Agenda of the Muhammadu Buhari Administration, the Federal Executive Council has given several approvals aimed at achieving more improvements in electricity supply and distribution in the country.

Chief among the approvals, received over the last two FEC meetings from memos presented by the Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Mr. Babatunde Fashola SAN, is the Aso Rock Villa, the official residence of the President, which will benefit from the Federal Government’s Eligible Customer Policy as the Council approved a Distribution Expansion Programme to off-take part of the stranded 2,000 MW to provide dedicated power to the Villa.

The approval, which was made at the FEC Meeting of Wednesday in Abuja, came as a response to a memorandum submitted earlier by the Federal Ministry of Power, Works and Housing seeking Council approval to include the Villa in the Distribution Expansion Programme earlier approved by the Council to enable 2,000MW of currently unutilized generation capacity to be distributed to targeted metered customers.

The Minister’s Special Adviser on Communication, Mr. Hakeem Bello made this known in a statement today.

The Ministry, according to the statement, had earlier obtained approval from the Bureau of Public Procurement (BPP) following its letter to the Bureau intimating it of the Council’s approval of the Distribution Expansion Programme with the intention of the Ministry to procure civil works that would facilitate uninterrupted power supply to the Aso Rock Villa and curb the present erratic supply of power in spite of the availability of power by the Generation Companies (GenCos).

The project to be executed by Messrs Dextron Engineering Limited, has a completion period of six months under the Distribution Expansion Programme. An arrangement has also been put in place such that a GenCo, North-South Power Company Limited
