FG Seeks Increased Manpower To Tackle Power Challenges

The Permanent Secretary, Federal Ministry of Power, Alhaji Mamudah Mamman, has said that human capital development is critical to having a sustainable and effective power sector.

Speaking during a one-day Stakeholders Retreat for Practitioners in the Electric Power Sector, organised by the National Power Training Institute of Nigeria (NAPTIN), in collaboration with Hak-Ben and Associates Nigeria Ltd, Mamman noted that human capital development is key for the country to navigate the current electricity challenges facing it.

“We stand united in the belief that development of human capital is integral to achieving our goals in the Nigeria Electricity Supply Industry (NESI).

“It is through our skilled professionals, technicians, engineers and all members of the workforce that we can innovate, improve service delivery and drive the sector towards greater heights of achievement.

“The NESI is at a pivotal stage. As we strive towards enhancing our capacity and reliability in electricity supply, the role of skilled human capital cannot be overstated.”

He said NAPTIN, in alignment with its objectives, remained at the forefront of the mission to continuously evolve to meet the educational and training needs of the power sector.

Earlier, NAPTIN’s Director-General, Ahmed Nagode, said there is a need to foster an environment of inclusivity and cooperation, where every stakeholder has a voice in shaping the direction of the sector.

“Together, we can bridge gaps, overcome challenges, and unlock new opportunities for growth and progress. Also, NAPTIN plays a significant role in empowering Nigerian youths by providing them with opportunities for skill acquisition, certification and career development in the energy sector.

“This empowers young people to become active participants in the workforce, fostering economic independence and contributing to the overall growth of the economy.”
