The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), Group Managing Director Mele Kyari, has spoken on how Nigeria can solve its electricity problem.

Kyari, on Friday, while speaking at an interactive media session with the National Association of Energy Correspondents in Abuja, said gas would help the country out of its electricity challenges.

He went on to say that the NNPC’s new focus is on gas development as the most resilient source of energy in the energy transition process.

Kyari said: “The only oil and gas that survived during the COVID-19 with minimal negative change was gas. Gas will help Nigeria out of its major challenge of electricity.”

He also explained that Nigeria’s biggest challenge “is to take electricity to homes, industries and to use the resources we have to create that energy this country needs.”

Kyari noted that because the NNPC cannot transmit it to those who need it Nigeria has an electricity problem.

“Today for two reasons we are not getting electricity because the production is low and we are not able to transmit it to those who need it.

“That means there is bottle neck in transmission and distribution system,” he added.

The GMD also noted that while Nigeria is known as an oil country, it is more a gas nation than oil. However, he assured that NNPC would continue to work to ensure full gas development in the country for economic growth, NAN reports.

The lack of constant electricity is one of the problems affecting Nigerians Today.
