Powering Africa Nigeria

October 12-14, 2016

The annual Powering Africa Nigeria meeting will take place in Abuja on the 12 - 14 October at the Hilton Transcorp. The Forum will be a premium private sector-led and finance focused summit on investment strategies, bringing together Nigeria’s electricity supply industry, local finance institutions, IPP and NIPP investors, power developers and international financiers to release capital in Nigeria’s transforming power sector.

In the last 12 months Nigeria’s electricity sector has been transformed with the arrival of Minister Babatunde Fashola, Minister for Power, Works and Housing, who has set out clearly his intention to break down the barriers to investment in the country’s energy sector. Following President Buhari’s lead to tackle bottlenecks and inefficiencies the Minister has embarked on a strategy to get the distribution companies working, providing support and regular interactions with the privately held companies that have worked tirelessly to build the electricity backbone of Nigeria.
