93m Nigerians currently lack access to electricity – Power for All

An international organization, Power for All, which is campaigning for the provision of electricity in many African countries, has said that no fewer than 93 million Nigerians lacked access to electricity.

Speaking during a workshop on ways of scaling up energy access to the rural and urban communities in Nigeria that had no power supply, the country director of Power for All and managing director of Clean Technology, Mrs. Ifeoma Malo said the renewable energy system being championed by her organization was capable of reversing the situation, going by the success recorded in areas that had benefited from the programme.

According to her, following the inadequate supply of power from the national grid, many families could not enjoy electricity in the country, adding that such places needed alternative power supply using the available technology.
