Lagos State Governor, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu, on Thursday, disclosed the plan by his Government to expand the capacity of the State-owned Independent Power Plant (IPP).
Sanwo-Olu said his administration would be harnessing private investment to boost the output of the IPP in response to the growing need to sustain the “Light-Up Lagos” project of his predecessor and also to absorb more public offices in the State-owned power grid.
