E. J. S. Uujamahas, FNSE, “because the Institution recently recorded the best performance in the last 12 years in the Annual Group Dynamic Competition organized by the Nigerian Society of Engineers, NSE.”
He then briefly dwells on the energy situation in the country. Noting that virtually all forms of economic and productive endeavour requires energy. That our continuing hovering around 5, 000MW of power generation is poor, especially when we bear in mind our large population and economic activities.
While as a nation, we are endowed with various energy sources including crude oil, natural gas, solar, coal etc, we as people are plagued with poor access to modern and affordable energy services. This in turn effect economic activities
