Expert wants review of power sector privatization agreement

The Convener and Executive Director, PowerUp Nigeria, Adetayo Adegbemle, has called for a review of the power sector privatization agreement.

According to Adegbemle, the review is key if the government is to reposition the sector.

“Things were unclear with pre-privatization, and many didn’t even know what to expect. So, it’s been a decade of learning for us all. The interesting thing about asking for reviews is that even without a ‘particular review’, the sector has been evolving.

“There are some low-hanging fruits like Metering of Consumers and all interfaces in the power sector, like Customer Enumeration and classification; balancing the mismatch between Generation, Transmission, and Distribution. All these are low-hanging fruits that should be addressed immediately and would affect the sector”, he said.
