THE LAGOS STATE ELECTRICITY POLICY - CONSULTATION PAPER

The Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources presented a Consultation Paper on the Lagos State Electricity Policy on behalf of the Babajide Olusola Sanwo-Olu (BOS) Administration. The Lagos State Electricity Policy will serve as a blueprint to achieve the Lagos State Government’s vision for universal access to electricity in the State.

 

It will also be a vital element in achieving the objectives of the BOS Administration’s T.H.E.M.E.S. agenda. Above all, this Administration expects it to be a key driver of the social and economic development aspirations of the State as part of the Government’s 30-year Development Plan (2021 – 2051), which is currently under development.

The policy resulting from this consultation process is expected to drive development towards a future where security and sustainability of electricity supply is assured. It should also contribute to reducing carbon emissions and thus improve the living conditions of all Lagosians.

The commissioner noted that as the population in Lagos State and the attendant energy consumption levels continue to rise, it is important that we create an enabling environment for the sustainable production and supply of reliable energy for the residents of the State. Hitherto, our electricity supply system has been characterized by regular power outages, a non-viable commercial construct and inadequate institutional will to drive change that benefits Lagos State and its residents.

They also recognized that delivering access to reliable electricity in Lagos cannot be achieved by the State Government acting alone. They therefore call on key stakeholders in the State, the national and global community, especially industry experts and private investors to provide robust responses to this Consultation Paper. All reactions, comments, queries and further enquiries should be sent for consideration by the State Government to This email address is being protected from spambots.
