The question above is what Nigerians are asking themselves after it emerged that the country would soon be selling power to Burkina Faso, a fellow African country.
Nigerians are asking: when will charity begin at home?
Ghana which is enjoying more stable power than Nigeria actually depends a lot on Nigeria for gas for its power plants.
This particular deal with Nurkina Faso can be excused, since it is private sector driven (by the concessionaire of Kainji Dam). But the Nigerian government should remember that until it gets power supply to Nigeria right the country’s economy won’t grow at full potential.
