The Minister of Power, Engr. Sale Mamman, has been given special commendation by the Senate Committee on Power for sanitizing and repositioning the Power sector in Nigeria for improved performance.
At a public hearing on the “Power Sector Plan and the Impact on the COVID-19 pandemic”, at the Senate building in Abuja, the Chairman of the Committee, Dr Gabriel Suswan, noted that the Minister’s untiring efforts to realign the activities of their agencies and the ministry will bring good returns for the sector.
The Minister’s spokesman, Aaron Artimas, in a statement today said Suswam commended the power minister for a presentation he made during the hearing, describing it as the best and presented a clear vision on how to ameliorate the myriad problems in the Power sector.
Senator Suswan and several other contributors at the hearing expressed their support for the Siemens deal saying that it would positively impact the sector especially the expansion of the transmission and distribution network.
The Minister in his presentation explained that the Siemens project will help to dramatically solve the problem of aligning the generation of Power with Transmission and distribution.
He disclosed that one of the major problems of the Minister of Power was proper coordination of the various agencies to achieve a common goal.
