Governor Akinwunmi Ambode of Lagos State has assented to the State Electric Power Reform bill. The law is specifically designed to generate at least 4, 000 megawatts of electricity under an embedded power initiative.
The governor also signed six other bills into law, namely: the Amended Land Use Charge Bill, School of Nursing Bill, Cooperative College Bill, Cancer Research Institute Bill, Amended Customary Court Bill, and the Yoruba Language Preservation and Promotion Bill.
He signed the bills at the State House, Alausa.
After signing the bills into law, Ambode noted that each of the legislation “is expected to contribute to the growth and development of the state. Electricity reform law gives legal backing to the embedded power initiative. It is designed to generate 1,000 megawatts of electricity in 2018 and 3,000 megawatts by 2022.”
