The Federal Executive Council (FEC) on Wednesday approved $64 million for power supply to Escravos communities.

This was disclosed by the Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Ibe Kachikwu, at the end of the FEC meeting chaired by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

According to him, if executed, it will stop the N18 million spent monthly by the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) to provide power to the area.
