Really? I blogged yesterday about generators in Nigeria, the very same day that President Goodluck Jonathan appointed a Special Adviser on Power. Mr. Barth Nnaji is charged with developing and driving an action plan for a steady power supply in the country. Vanguaard News reports that “the newly appointed special adviser would also work with seven special assistants who would oversee the monitoring of performance and progress on specific power sector issues in the areas of generation, transmission, distribution, fuel-to-power, the National Integrated Power Project, BPE, regulatory issues; other transition enablers, and labour issues.”
All I know is that Faith Alive needs the electricity to flow on a regular basis. It's not really helpful when NEPA only turns on the power from midnight to 2 am.
It’s too bad that Mr. Nnaji wasn’t charged with giving special power to the Super Eagles yesterday in their last game of the FIFA World Cup 2010.
