Nigeria Economic Update (Issue 36)

Power sector statistics
show a significant increase in power generated from August 12 to August 19,
2016. Precisely, power generated increased by 2.2 percent to 3953.6MW(a
4-month high). Increased water reserves in dams for hydro generating plants occasioned
by seasonal adjustments (rainy season), led to improved power generation.
Additionally, in a bid to further improve and sustain power generation, the
federal government received a $100 million credit facility from India.
However, consistent power supply could be jeopardized if the development is not
aided by improved distribution by DISCOs.
