This was disclosed by the Bureau of Public Enterprises (BPE) in its 2021 Budget Defence in Abuja.
Geregu 2 Power Plant would be sold for N140.7 billion, Omotosho Power Plant N151.4 billion and Calabar Power Plant N143.4 billion, the BPE said. The Geregu 2 Power Plant differs from the Geregu Power Plant owned by Billionaire, Femi Otedola.
