I dont think it will ever be possible, i think it is better for each state to be responsible for their own power generation

Government claims there is an improvement in power supply despite public admission of not meeting target.

you are right, it is going to cost more than 100 billion dollars. but if the environment is right, investors will come.

and our environment is more than right. my brother, do you know how much money one stands to make in the power sector ? The demand for power is so huge. the telecoms are making billions of naira every month and this pales to the demand for electricity.

we need more than one investor, no one is going to come up with $100 billion all by themself.

The problem we have now is that, there is still govt intervention with the privitization scheme being put in place. The govt will be transmitting the power generated by the private firms under the proposed scheme.

This makes it less attractive - the power generators are not directly dealing with the final consumers as is the case with the telecoms.

No doubt. I was thinking about it. We need an IBB or something to invest in that. I think this would cost more than 100 billion dollars so who is willing to put funds together? When would you break even?

I think its hard to privately invest in power.

Listen, we need private funds to help build the power sector. The reason gsm is successful is because it is private

sector driven. MTN, GLO, ZAIN etc came in with their funds, built their lines and pay their taxes.

There is no way PHCN can provide 24 hour uninterrupted power supply

as presently constituted. The power sector needs to be fully privitized

for us to reach the promise land.

As someone said on another thread, complete power privitization would overwhelmingly

favour Southern Nigeria because it is the backbone of commerce and industry in Nigeria.

If you say No then it means you have given up on Nigeria and that's sad. Stop being hopeless people. Its like saying Nigeria can never be great.

24hr electricity isn't even guaranteed in the US but i get what you are saying. YES they can give us power supply for 24hrs if they try but they choose not to.

The simple answer is NO because if they can give us light 24hr Uninterrupted Supply, we would have been enjoying it long time ago.
