If you have lived long enough in Nigeria, you must be conversant with the words UP NEPA! Interestingly, these words have lingered very long in the mouths of a lot of Nigerians – especially the middle and low income earners across various states of the country. Over the years, there’s been a lot of failed promises from the government with regards to improving power supply across the states of the nation.

According to a World Bank press release (https://www.worldbank.org/en/news/press-release/2020/06/23/nigeria-to-keep-the-lights-on-and-power-its-economy ), about 47% of Nigerians do not have access to grid electricity and those who do have access, face regular power cuts. In addition, the economic cost of power shortages in Nigeria is estimated at around $28 billion – equivalent to 2% of its Gross Domestic Product (GDP). In the same report, the World Bank Country Director for Nigeria –Shubham Chaudhuri said – “The lack of reliable power has stifled economic activity and private investment and job creation, which is ultimately what is needed to lift 100 million Nigerians out of poverty,”.

An article published by the Premium Times Nigeria on the 9th of September, 2020 (https://www.premiumtimesng.com/news/headlines/405288-power-outage-how-nigerias-electricity-problem-cripples-small-businesses.html ), stated that “according to the United Nations, for its population of about 200 million people, Nigeria’s energy need is 170,000MW. But data obtained from the websites of the Ministry of Power and the Nigerian Electricity Supply Industry (NESI) showed that the country presently boasts of 7500 megawatts (MW) of available electricity generation, with an installed capacity of about 13,000MW. The transmission wheeling capacity is estimated to be about 5000MW but due to technical constraints, distribution to homes and businesses is less than 4000MW.


With the statistics we have provided for you, there is substantial evidence that at the present moment and with its current generation capacity, Nigeria is unable to provide sufficient electricity to cater for the needs of both individuals and businesses. Our best advice is that for now, individuals and businesses must invest in alternative solutions that are cost effective – this is where we step in!
