President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday said Nigeria is decentralising the nation’s national grid through renewable mini-grids to address the challenges of electricity supply across the country.

Buhari said this during an interview with Bloomberg News, adding that his Government had earmarked 550 million dollars to provide 20,000 Standalone Solar Systems (SHS), as well as Solar Hybrid mini-grids in over 250 locations in the country.
