No explosion In Zungeru Power Plant — Power Minister

The Minister of Power, Chief Adebayo Adelabu has refuted reports of an explosion at the Zungeru Power Plant in Niger State, on Monday.
Adelabu said the Power Plant is on the grid and the plant is running at optimum capacity.

A statement by his Special Adviser, Strategic Communication and Media Relations, Bolaji Tunji, quoted the minister as saying that the report of an explosion is a figment of the imagination of the purveyors of such information.

“I have spoken with the Managing Director of Mainstream Energy and I can assure you that nothing of such took place in Zungeru.

“The plant is working, and it continues to supply to the grid. We have video evidence from Zungeru that nothing like that occurred today (Monday), and whoever is interested should go there to find out,” Adelabu said.

He described as rather unfortunate that “people will sit down somewhere and cook up this sort of story. It is unpatriotic, such people should desist from creating unnecessary panic”.

The minister further assured Nigerians of adequate supply of energy, saying, “We have seen the worst in the sector, we can only get better. We promised incremental supply of power, and that is what is happening now and that’s why we have the present improvement and it will continue”, the Minister assured.
