Otedola, who is also the largest shareholder of First Bank Nigeria (FBN), said the power sector of Nigeria has a lot of problems which could be solved depending on the country’s leadership.

Under the administrations of President Muhammadu Buhari and Goodluck Jonathan, Nigeria’s power grid collapsed at least 220 times. This is between 2010 and 2022.NYSC Portal

Last year, the grid collapsed six times in 10 months, with the country’s power generation fluctuating between 4,000 megawatts and 5,000 megawatts, with the highest level being 5,801.6MW on March 1, 2021.

“The power sector has a lot of problems but they are surmountable problems. It is a matter of leadership in the country and willpower,” Otedola stated.

Otedola said it was appalling and disheartening that all the successive governments had failed to improve the deplorable electricity supply.JAMB Result

“So any government that thinks well will say let us look for few entrepreneurs in this sector that have committed so much capital and time and let them sort out the problem.”

“Of course, with Forte and Zenon, I used to control the diesel market. Today, I am crying. I have asked my team (my back office) to start installing solar power to save the cost of diesel. If power is well organised, it is even cheaper,” Otedola said.
