How Electricity Can Save Nigeria From Recession

Nigerian is 56 years old since independence on the first of October 1960.but has no record of 24 hours steady electric power supply.
There are many ways adequate and constant electric power supply can restore Nigerian economy
i will go straight to the point. 
Do well to share to fellow Nigerians friends that love the positive growth Nigeria.  
Internationally Nigerian standard of education in nothing to write home about. Students and pupils face different challengers while learning. Challenges such as 

  • Dirty dis-encouraging Environment
  • Poor Lab Facilities.
  • Bad Class equipments.
  • Noisy Environment.
  • Absence of electronic means of learning which the world is into presently. etc
But all  this can be curbed when constant electricity is being supplied.
Most Nigerian schools don't see the essence in introducing electronic means of learning due to the lack of electricity to keep the electronic equipment running and the present immense cost of fuel (petrol diesel etc.)
A class session with electricity being interrupted at intervals would not be of benefit to any student.
that has worked so hard during a project or class session and loose the precious work done  in a flash.
Steady electricity will guarantee  the student, no loosing of work done and boost the moo rah inside the student towards education.

Learning nowadays have taken another direction, talk of e-learning. Most Nigerian schools cannot boast of a well sustained lab for either E-library or E-learning.

The reason being that, no steady electricity to keep the school Internet server system up and running, round the clock. But if steady electricity is provided and the budget of fuel purchase is cut out. School managements would not mind going as far as providing Internet connection to students even outside the E-learning centers.
Most Nigerian youth find time at night to read,
 but yet faced with the option of reading in the dark - which steady electricity would save them that stress.


Have you ever been to a bank to carry out some transaction. All of a sudden you experience power failure.
That's bad isn't it.

  • Hackers can easily find their way into a network that is still booting up. Most banks ignore that because they do not expect such level of attack in Nigeria.
  • A Network could crash down totally if it keeps on booting and booting at intervals.
  • People feel so insecure when their money safe house is experiencing a power outage.
But steady electricity would solve all of this. Think of this. if a country can provide steady power, security in the banking sector will be at it's peak at all times.
The issue of network having one problem or the other will suspend. Because all banks are connected together making one bank a possible route to the side of the network.
so a failure at one point will definitely interrupt the network.
I have been to a bank (name withheld) to deposit to my account. Then the bank lost power, all UPS went screaming and could not hold the computer used in the bank for long.
I had to wait close to an Hour for the bank to turn on the already damaged generator plant.
This long wait would no have occurred if the bank had steady electric power to consume and equally serve the pubic effectively.


Transportation is very very vital in a society and it's importance is so classic.
for this reason scientist have pushed the edge to create fast bullet trains that run on electricity.

But it saddening that Nigeria has no such train. From where i live, i do hear the throttling of a old model train struggling to attain speed and at the same time polluting the environment with smoke and noise.
Nigerian can afford fast electric powered train. but it will need a steady electric power to avoid keeping passengers stranded mid way.

The issue of power outage went as far as affecting an international airport in Nigeria Lagos

But, if a steady electric power is available transport firms in Nigeria will up theirs service rendered and still make profit at the end.

One will never thin electricity will help improve Nigerian roads. But yes it will.

When roads are being constructed by crude implements and poor equipments,then street lights and glowing road signs are ignored you will get a bad result and increase chances of an accidents.
 But when you introduce high end road constructing equipments and put in proper glowing conspicuous road signs. Accidents on the road will fall drastically.

Now for the main aspect


In  21st Century globally top ranking businesses use enough electric energy in the daily affairs of the business. Industry rely more on electricity than ever before.
So lack of electricity is one of the major challenge faced by Nigerian based industry. Most industry struggle to generate alternative source of electric energy, leading to the poor service rendered by most of them.
Small and Medium enterprises in Nigerian border less on electric energy - little wonder such business remain on a small scale. You won't blame the small scale entrepreneur for that, but the government has failed to give them what it takes to grow, (POWER)

A company that is not bordered o hindered by electric power has a high tendencies if achieving their set goals everyday. 
So constant electricity will go a long way in developing all business striving in in Nigeria today.

People tend to do away with the easy more efficient way of doing things.
For instance
  • Parents not purchasing a Laptop for Kids - not because they cannot afford it, but because of the cost of keeping it running. 
  • Or a business man still keeping record with books. while he can go they easy way of using a spreadsheet application.
  • Even an individual that will look untidy in a rumpled cloth.
  • High Institution student not being able to write a JAMB CBT test.

All these are caused y lack of electricity. The reason being obvious.
A parent that experience lack of electricity, or uses power generators at home will have these lack of interest in the digital world. Mainly, because such parent cannot tap into that world without electricity.
Such parent will even see the need of that, because the live wire to the digital world is scarce.
But if there is this constant electricity - Parents would not mind having a cyber cafe in their homes.

Business are become too tedious to manage - even for those that hawk.
So softwares are now made available to help manage the finance of any business. Here is the BUT.
Lack of electricity in a business firm hinders access to those software.
Those Software Do Not Run On Air.
Leaving entrepreneurs no option but to go the old archaic method. And the service rendered poor
But if electricity is made available, managing a business will be an effortless work.

I hate being untidy, for these reason i strive to look clean and kept everyday. But the lack of constant electricity makes the whole thing difficult. If the Government can provide at least constant electricity, people will look smart and happy everyday. People with low paid jobs  will even go clean everyday. Constant electricity will change Nigerians Lifestyle.
Do you know most people that have time for worthless agitations are lacking entertainment in their lifestyle. My little research proved that to me.If constant electricity is provided - youth will even more things to do with their life instead of joining Militancy and gangs.
Most Nigeria youth are less exposed to the world of I.T because of lack of Constant electricity. And they find it difficult to cope whenever an examination is Computer Based. But if constant electricity is made available. Every youth would see the future in being conversant with electronic gadgets.

There is so much more constant Electricity will do for Nigeria.
