Nigeria's energy infrastructure will be improved by 2015, says president
19 August 2011
The energy infrastructure in Nigeria is set to see an improvement after president Goodluck Jonathan revealed plans to boost its power supply.
He told the Board of the Niger Delta Power Holding Company that the government intends to provide continuous power supply to the nation by 2015.
President Jonathan said: "We look forward to a time when Nigerians can enjoy uninterrupted power supply from the beginning to the end of a year and we are working hard to ensure that."
Members of Niger Delta Power Holding board were encouraged to contribute to this goal.
Vice-president of the group Namadi Sambo stated that it would help by delivering National Integrated Power Projects across the country on schedule to meet energy supply needs.
Another nation on the continent that is working hard at improving its power output is South Africa.
Its Department of Energy recently advertised for investors to bid on a green power plant in the Sunday Times newspaper to boost its production of environmentally-friendly fuel.
