Electricity is the engine of economic growth. Lighted streets enhance security. Stable electricity allows businesses to focus on creating products and services, boosting the economy and leading to job creation. Power lights up classrooms, reduces spoilage of foods and enhances health.
We will increase generation capacity from the current 7,000 megawatts to 24,000 megawatts within the first four years and ramp up the build out of Nigeria’s electricity transmission infrastructure, with emphasis on industrial and agriculture hubs. We will decentralise Nigeria’s electric power generation and diversify the energy mix by strategically focusing on natural gas, hydro, solar, coal, wind and gasoline. Our plans leverage public-private partnerships to draw in investments to grow Nigeria’s electricity generation and transmission capacity.
