Experts urge Buhari to address power problem

TS. The incoming government of President-elect Muhammadu Buhari has been called upon to address the issue of poor power supply in the country.
At the recently held Lagos Business School’s Centre for Infrastructure, Policy, Regulation and Advancement and the Heinrich Boll Foundation’s forum on Nigeria’s energy future, various experts said much needed to be done to get the power and energy sector out of the doldrums.

According to Dr. Ijeoma Nwagwu of the CIPRA, little or no discussions have been held on how to permanently solve the energy problem in the country.
Nwagwu noted that detailed concepts and policies for the required increase in electricity supply had hardly been discussed in public, even during the recent election campaigns.
She added, “If it is to make gains on its commitment to create jobs, address insecurity and corruption in Nigeria, the new government must deal with the reality that 80 per cent of Nigerians lack stable power supply and two-thirds of Africans, mainly in the rural areas, live without electricity.
