1st Report January - June 2010
The NDC identified challenges in the energy sector as “inadequate, expensive and unreliable supply of power” The energy challenges in the country have remained a high priority for successive governments. It has also led to the dismissal of many energy ministers as well as deputy ministers. Consumers often complain of poor services delivered by energy service providers, including electricity providers and petroleum products suppliers. It was therefore not surprising that the NDC laid emphasis on improved energy provision in its 2008 manifesto.
Our visit to the information ministry revealed that government plans to kick start the project when the West Africa Gas Project is ready. Meanwhile, there have been series of ongoing renovation and maintenance works by the sector agencies.
