We will amend laws to solve Nigeria’s energy crisis – Saraki


The President of the Senate Dr. Bukola Saraki has said that the National Assembly will amend the laws on power generation, transmission and distribution to solve Nigeria’s energy crisis, Vanguard reports.

Speaking in Germany he said that the amendment would be in view of replicating the feat recorded by the German Village, Feldheim, where residents combined efforts and local resources to produce clean and renewable energy. The Senate President said that the achievement of the Germans was possible in Nigeria if only the leadership and the operators could be serious and demonstrate the will power.

He said the issue of power supply remains top in the agenda of the Senate as it was a key instrument for eradicating poverty and unleashing the potentials of the people. “We have to amend the laws to allow communities to generate energy that is more than 10 megawatts and even the laws about power transmission and distribution have to be amended to allow more creativity and involvement from the private sector”, he said.
