Tambuwal Calls For States To Be Allowed To Generate, Distribute Power

Sokoto State Governor Aminu Waziri Tambuwal has called for a review of the law on power generation in the country, so that states would be allowed to generate and distribute electricity, The Guardian reports.

The governor who spoke yesterday while opening the 2017 Law Week of Sokoto State branch of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA), said the existing practice of states generating power and evacuating it to the national grid was no longer in the best interest of the country.

Tambuwal also suggested that the railway service should be removed from the exclusive legislative list so that interested states would be able to invest in it. He assured the NBA that its members would be included in the proposed general review of the state’s laws, which he described as obsolete.
