UK To support Nigeria's Power Sector Reform

British High Commissioner to Nigeria, Mr. Paul Arkwright, said the British Government would support power sector reform in Nigeria.



Arkwright disclosed this to journalists after visiting the Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola.

He said the visit was to identify areas of collaboration with the Nigerian Government, especially in infrastructure and power sector.

He said the idea was to support President Muhammadu Buhari’s agenda on diversification, adding that no meaningful progress could be made without effective power sector.

The envoy said the meeting was also for British companies to take advantage of the opportunities available in Nigeria’s power sector.

They should support their own first. They haven't finished sorting out their own power problems and they want to support another country.

Hope it won't be a case of "I give you one, you should give me two." Our Govt should be careful with ndi ocha ndia.

Why now? In truth, Britain has had all the time in the world to make Naija's power, water, roads & other basic infrastructures top notch b/4 today seeing it was her colonial master & part of the Commonwealth. So, is the U.K. just waking up from a long slumber or was it bcos Great Britain was really invested in keeping Nigeria in perpetual underdevelopment? Better to get the Chinese firms/partners to do what is critical for Nigeria's growth and viability going fwd. Namsense....QED@AllTribesMatter(atm)
