Nigeria’s Power Sector Faces Challenges: Increased Manpower and Human Capital Development Key to Success

The Permanent Secretary of the Federal Ministry of Power, Alhaji Mamudah Mamman, recently emphasized the importance of human capital development in achieving a sustainable and effective power sector in Nigeria.

Speaking at a one-day Stakeholders Retreat for Practitioners in the Electric Power Sector, organized by the National Power Training Institute of Nigeria (NAPTIN) in collaboration with Hak-Ben and Associates Nigeria Ltd, Mamman stressed that human capital development is essential for navigating the current electricity challenges facing the country.

NAPTIN’s Director-General, Ahmed Nagode, echoed the sentiment, highlighting the need for an inclusive environment where stakeholders can collaborate to shape the sector’s direction.

This collaboration will help bridge gaps, overcome challenges, and unlock new opportunities for growth and progress in the Nigerian power sector.

One of the key aspects of NAPTIN’s role in empowering Nigerian youths is providing them with opportunities for skill acquisition, certification, and career development in the energy sector.

By doing so, young people become active participants in the workforce, contributing to the overall growth of the economy and fostering economic independence.

As Nigeria’s power sector continues to face challenges, it is evident that increased manpower and human capital development will be critical to its success.

Through the efforts of organizations like NAPTIN and collaboration between stakeholders, the country can work towards enhancing its capacity and reliability in electricity supply, ultimately driving the sector towards greater heights of achievement.
