According to Fashola, President Muhammadu Buhari has approved that all stakeholders in the sector should hold monthly meetings on issues concerning the industry.

He said that the meeting would be rotated among the various GENCOs, DISCOs, TCN and other stakeholders across the country.

In this respect, the minister stated that the various companies and stakeholders would each be represented by a management member with authority to take decision on behalf of their companies.

The minister further said the meetings would also involve lawyers, engineers, planners and other stakeholders, adding that
the ministry would issue a communiqué at the end of each meeting on steps taken to address challenges in the sector. (NAN).
