Buhari Appoints James Momoh As NERC Chairman by tolufase(m): 3:44pm On Apr 21
President Muhammadu Buhari has nominated Prof. James Momoh for the position of Chairman of the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC).

The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Malam Garba Shehu, made this known in a statement on Friday.

Shehu quoted Buhari as strongly expressing belief that Momoh has the technical knowledge, capacity and integrity to lead the commission's effort to bring about the much needed change in Nigeria's power sector.

"The President's nominee to the Senate for confirmation is a Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science; and Director of Energy Services and Controls at Howard University, United States of America.

"Prof. Momoh, a Life Fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers and Fellow of the Nigeria Society of Engineers, has over three decades of teaching and research experience in power system, smart grid, optimisation and power communications.

"The 1987 recipient of the National Science Foundation-US White House Presidential Young Investigator Award is a widely published scholar and has held several professional leadership positions in the academia.

"Prof Momoh has a Doctorate degree in electrical engineering from Howard University; Master's degrees in systems engineering from the University of Pennsylvania; and electrical engineering from Carnegie University. He obtained his Bachelor's degree in electrical engineering in 1975 from Howard University," Shehu stated.

Ya!

It looks like a round peg in a round hole.

But this is Nigeria where many outcomes/results disgrace and embarrass professionalism.

Without nigerian cooperation, he may very likely not succeed.

his professionalism and our cooperation, 1000GW is attainable and sustainable before 2019.

This could be the most fitting appointment yet by this administration. Nice pedigree.

Please end this power nightmare soon, cos right now it feels like my area is on NIGHT PLAN. They only bring it for less than 3hrs on the nights they even bring it at all, between midnight and 6am. Forget about light during the day.

The matter don tire me.

The Same group of alien-looking looters. No youth in their clan. There is no politics, all we have is a rotation of rogues with links to the presidency. What has been the result of all the previous appointments? This government is just a bed of savages

You have no atom of shame. Still boldly telling people to shut up while drowning deep into tribalism.

Back to the topic. The first problem we have in addition to same old stories of 'gas and water constraints' are these unserious discos and gencos operated by politicians who have no interest in the power sector, rather than real private investors who would be working hard to expand their acquired assets to send out more power.
These useless discos keep rejecting the small power that we manage to produce, they failed to provide prepaid meters as political owners are always corrupt and would rather steal from the masses thru estimated bills.
I wish this regulator chairman well in the unique environment called Nigeria!

This is the first time Buhari "almost" hit the bull's eye.

Though still in the power sector, he would do better as the Head of power sector.

Why are Nigerians always concerned about state of origin whenever an appointment is announced. Maybe we should scrap state of origin and then Nigeria can start to develop
