PWC says the attainment of uninterrupted electricity supply is possible if the right stakeholder collaborations are affected. It, therefore, stressed the urgent need for stakeholders in the power sector to work together if the required result must happen. This was the conclusion at PwC’s 9th annual power roundtable held in Lagos and attended by key stakeholders across the power value chain.
The Country Senior Partner for PwC Nigeria, Uyi Akpata, represented by Cyril Azobu, Head, Advisory and Consulting, in a report by service firm on Monday, said: “For almost a decade, the Roundtable has provided stakeholders with the platform to discuss issues, challenges and developments in the power sector. Because of the longevity of inadequate power supply and because of how insurmountable the challenges appear, there is a tendency to overlook the aspects that we have gotten right”.
“This year’s edition with the theme: Power Play: Working together to achieve success, was therefore focused on highlighting some of the achievements that have been recorded by stakeholders in power generation, distribution and financing.” In his presentation, Rays of Light: The Journey of the Transformation in the Nigerian Power Sector, Moshood Olajide, Partner & Power Industry Tax Leader, noted that there is a need for massive investment in power infrastructure, and that though “the sector is clearly experiencing growing pains, the challenges highlight a universe of inherent opportunities”.
