The Director-General of the Bureau of Public Enterprises (BPE), Mr Alex Okoh, told journalists yesterday in Abuja that the agreement-signing ceremony showed the fact that rather than being hamstrung by the negative impact of COVID-19, the privatisation agency scaled up its activities during the pandemic by concluding the sale process.

He stated: “We had to review our activities as an agency upward instead of downward as a result of the COVID-19 issues. We did not slow down but actually heightened activities basically to help generate revenue to support the fiscal plan for the year.

“And incidentally, tomorrow (today) just as an indication of some of the activities that we have heightened up, we are going to be doing the signing ceremony for the sale of Afam Power Plant to the preferred bidder. That alone will fetch the federal government a total sum of N105 billion. So, we didn’t slow down our activities at all; business is continuing as usual for us.”

Okoh said the preferred bidder for the power plant also runs the Transcorp Ughelli Power Plant, adding that they won the bid out of a strong field of about 12 prospective investors.

The Afam Plant and Yola Electricity Distribution Company are among nine power assets listed for sale this year alongside 10 other government-owned companies, all projected to yield over N260 billion.
