The Federal Government, on Wednesday, claimed that it has solved the power outage being experienced across the country.
However, the apex government blamed pipeline vandalisation, grid collapses among other challenges as causes of the recurrent nationwide blackout.
The Minister of Power, Abubakar Aliyu, disclosed this while briefing State House Correspondents after the week’s virtual Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting presided over by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo.
“We have recovered the grid now. The grid is back and we are trying to get more megawatts to push on the grid. We have set up small committees all geared towards getting more megawatts to put on the grid,” he told reporters.
