The newly appointed Minister of Power, Professor Chinedu Nebo has assured that with the review and reversal of the original roadmap of the power sector developed in 2010, the Ministry will produce data which are consistent with the current and future challenges in the sector as well as tackle most of the ensuing technical challenges.

Prof. Nebo said this at the technical retreat of the Presidential Task Force on Power (PTFP) held in Abuja last week. He stressed that power sector development is an ongoing project which will take time, money and more importantly the support of all Nigerians to see to its completion. According to him, the increasing frequency of system collapses of our grid was a source of grave concern and hereby urged  the operatives of this segment in the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) to be extra-diligent and vigilant to curb its continuous occurrence.

The Minister urged the Presidential Task Force on Power (PTFP), to put in their best in order to develop a power sector worthy of emulation by its counterparts both at local and international levels.
In his words: “I have no doubt that with the commitment and dedication of all the stakeholders, the concerted effort of all will provide a guiding tool towards an impressive sector”.
He also added that, everybody is involved in the onerous task ahead despite the challenges which were surmountable with unalloyed commitment and collective resolve to light up the country.

Prof. Nebo, in conclusion, reinstated how the sector has been left in utter neglect for decades before the intervention of President Goodluck Jonathan and thereby implored Nigerians to appreciate the efforts of the present Administration which he said has so far recorded substantial improvements in power supply adding that “the best is yet to be achieved”.
Meanwhile, the Honorable Minister, Prof. Chinedu Nebo has been confirmed as one of the speakers at the strategic conference of the Nigerian Oil and Gas alongside the Executive Governor of Akwa Ibom, Dr. Godswill Akpabio; the Executive Governor of Bayelsa State, Hon. Seriake Dickson and the Chairman of Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC) scheduled to hold between February 18 and 21, 2013.
