The Manufacturers Association of Nigeria (MAN), has assured its members that electricity shortage will soon be addressed, as most of its Independent Power Projects (IPPs) in the states are close to completion.
Consequently, MAN noted that plans are underway to help its members get access to the eligible customer scheme, despite deliberate efforts by distribution companies (DisCos) to block them.
The Director-General, MAN, Segun Kadir, in a chat with newsmen said they are making progress and a number of projects are almost maturing adding that the manufacturers generated at least 13,000MW of electricity under the IPPs and micro-grid platforms.
MAN hopes to use the Manufacturers Power Development Company (MPDC), as a vehicle to achieve the gradual transition from dependence on DisCos for electricity to its IPPs.
