Nasir El Rufai, Governor of Kaduna State, has criticised the privatisation of the power sector, claiming that Nigeria has wasted over 15 years of energy sector investment.
He said that clear roadmaps for structural reforms established by the Obasanjo administration in the electrical, electricity, and oil and gas sectors had been delayed or abandoned by his immediate successors.Information Guide Nigeria
El Rufai, speaking at the 9th Nigeria Energy Conference in Lagos on Wednesday, said investments in power generating and transmission facilities undertaken by the Obasanjo administration were either put on hold or totally abandoned between 2007 and 2010.
Between 2007 to 2010, Nigeria was led by late President Musa Yar’adua. His vice, Goodluck Jonathan, replaced him as President from 2010 until 2015.JAMB Result

“Nigeria requests for its growth and development, the delivery of affordable, reliable, and sustainable energy for homes and businesses. This country has lost about 15 years of efforts in investment in the energy sector. The clear roadmaps for structural reforms set up by the Obasanjo government in the electrical, power, and oil and gas sectors were protracted or abandoned by his immediate successors,” he said.
The Kaduna state governor also said the first version of the electricity industry bill initiated by him was not put into law.
He said, “I had the privilege as head of Bureau of Public Enterprises to initiate and lead in drafting the bill, which was ready by 2003, but was not presented to the National Assembly and, of course, we all know that it was not enacted then.”
