29 September 2015, Abuja—Nigeria’s  largest power generation plant, Egbin Power Plc, has started generating above 1000 Megawatts of electricity into the national grid.

Chairman of the company, Mr. Kola Adesina, said this while giving update on the activities of the company in Abuja yesterday. He attributed the increase to the power sector privatization.

He said: “This is the first time since inception of the power plant that it will achieve the feat because of the investment and upgrade activities on the plant by the new inve-stors, Sahara Power Group and Korea Electric Power Corporation, KEPCO.

“We are already envisioning a future of 2670Mw in a few years and even go beyond to 10,000Mw in the next decade: if gas supply, transmission expansion and demand permits.”
