80 Million Nigerians Lack Access To Electricity – World Bank by Dilijingsly(m): 9:54am On Dec 06, 2017
About 80 million Nigerians living in 8000 villages across the country lack access to electricity, the World Bank has said.

World Bank Global Lead, Energy Access, Mr. Mac Cosgrove-Davies, said this during the opening ceremony of the “Fourth Mini Grid Action Learning Event: titled, ‘Up scaling Mini Grids for Low-Cost and Timely Access to Electricity’ in Abuja on Tuesday.

Cosgrove-Davies said six out of ten people without access to electricity in the world were resident in Africa.

He also disclosed that the Federal Government had requested the World Bank’s assistance for off-grip power projects that could extend access to Nigerians living without electricity.

The World Bank executive said, “We know what is at stake: globally, more than one billion people still lack access to electricity; Sub Saharan Africa is home to about 600 million of these.

“In Nigeria, 80 million people are without access, and millions more suffer from poor service. Rural Electrification Agency expects mini grids to fill a substantial portion of that gap covering up to 8000 villages nationwide.

“This is not a job for any one of us alone. The government of Nigeria is pushing hard toward universal electrification.”

He added, “The Nigerian government has asked the World Bank’s support for a National Electrification Project that focuses on off-grid opportunities including mini grids and the World Bank is delighted to respond to this request.

“We know that our development partners – many in this room – are also standing shoulder-to-shoulder with government on this effort.

“For the World Bank’s part, the National Electrification Project fits well into a broader energy portfolio in Nigeria which aims to holistically support sector development. Together with all of you, we are seeking to help our Nigerian colleagues make the most of international expertise and experience as it fits the Nigerian setting.”

Cosgrove-Davies urged all stakeholders to contribute their quotas towards the success of the projects.

Tbe world bank has underestimated the numbers once again , its not 80 million but actually 160 million nigerians dont have access to electricity ..I define access to electricity as the "ability to have electricity supply upon demand whenever where ever " so in this light can any Nigerian be said to have electricity ? Hell No ..The Buhari govt gives me an average of 3 hours of electricity a day and also determines what time of the day i can have it ..That my good people is not access to electricity but an access to a bizzare game of" Electricity Roulette " which is nothing but a game of chance or at best a preview of Electricity services

Countries like Germany produce too much and don’t know what to do with it. And it’s not like the excess is from burning coal o! Renewable energy!!

What is so hard in going to Brazil study how they are able to do it, hire experts come and replicate it in Nigeria, labor is cheap.

I just don’t know o. It’s just hard to understand why we can’t get it!

If they should include those who get power for a max of 2hours a day, the figure would be triple..
Power is messed up in Naija.

What is even more annoying is that there is a very foolish girl on this forum who attacks anyone for exposing the many ills of Nigeria.

Can't remember her moniker now.
