“Nigerian power sector knows what to do, needs to stand together and make it happen” says Future Energy Nigeria director Nigeria’s energy elite to focus on restoring investor confidence “I’m excited about Nigeria’s energy future, Nigeria IS the future” says a confident Ade Yesufu, who is heading up the Future Energy Nigeria initiative that is taking place in Lagos from 7-8 November. As the Global Business Director for the upcoming Future Energy Nigeria, an event that has a solid reputation as a longstanding, high-level gathering place for the region’s power sector, Ade is currently in Nigeria to meet the country’s decision makers and pave the way for another ground-breaking power pow-wow in November. “We have to restore investor confidence” Ade Yesufu explains: “I don’t see the current recession as a reason to be negative or even cautious about Nigeria’s economic future. If anything, it has focused Government and industry alike to make sure we get the basics right to stimulate much-needed growth and we need a reliable and affordable power supply to do that. The Federal Government’s Nigerian Power Sector Recovery Programme is an important message to the rest of the world that Nigeria is planning significant improvements towards achieving structural economic change with a more diversified and inclusive economy. To me, this creates an important foundation to showcase the enormous business and investment opportunities that the sector provides and I cannot help but be very excited about that.” He adds: “we all know that there is a lot of work to do, we have to restore investor confidence, but we are ready to get everyone together and to make sure we showcase the myriad of opportunities in the sector; from gas to renewables, from generation to distribution and from actual building projects to providing specialised services. The power sector knows what to do, needs to stand together and make it happen. Nigeria is ready!”
