Reliable access to the electric power needed by several homes and businesses remains a great obstacle facing Nigeria. More than ever, the social-economic wellbeing of Nigeria is under severe threat due to formidable challenges in her Power sector. The manufacturing industries are folding up, while others are relocating their production plants to more friendly havens because of the high cost of doing business.
