Energy experts are calling on the federal government to invest more in the energy sector in other to grow the Nigeria’s economy out of recession.
The call was made at a conference in Abuja, held to mark the 2016 World Energy Day.
Talks at the conference were focused on the theme, “Sustainable and Affordable Energy and the Challenges for Nigeria”.
However, the experts attributed the poor economic development in most African countries, including Nigeria, to the lack of efficient electricity supply.
Meanwhile, apart from asking the government to invest in the sector, they also want full implementation of existing national energy policies.
They believe that the policies would make access to energy sustainable and affordable.
