Fashola says there will not be nationwide power shutdown

The Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Mr. Babatunde Fashola, has faulted the recent statement by the Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, Egbin Power Plc, Mr. Dallas Peavey Jr, that the country’s power woes may worsen in the days.
Peavey Jr had said the nation may experience total blackout due to liquidity and gas supply issues, threatening that owners of the plant might be forced to consider shutting it down if the challenges remained unresolved.
However, Fashola described the statement as “inflammatory and insensitive to Nigeria’s national security.”
