Senate President: We Will Amend Laws To Solve Energy Crisis

Senate President: We Will Amend Laws To Solve Energy Crisis



The President of the Senate Dr. Bukola Saraki has said that the National Assembly will amend the laws on power generation, transmission and distribution to solve Nigeria’s energy crisis. Speaking in Germany he said that the amendment would be in a view to replicate the feat recorded by the German Village, Feldheim, where residents combined efforts and local resources to produce clean and renewable energy. The President of the Senate spoke after inspecting the project in the energy self-sufficient village located 70 kilometres outside Berlin.

In a statement by his Special Adviser (Media and Publicity), Yusuph Olaniyonu, he said that the achievement of the Germans was possible in Nigeria if only the leadership and the operators could be serious and demonstrate the will power. He said the issue of power supply remains top in the agenda of the Senate as it was a key instrument for eradicating poverty and unleashing the potentials of the people. “That is why we had a workshop on the sector last month. It is also why we are here to see the experiment and success of the people of Feldheim and see what our people can learn from it”, he said.

“We have to amend the laws to allow communities to generate energy that is more than 10 megawatts and even the laws about power transmission and distribution have to be amended to allow more creativity and involvement from the private sector”, he said. While briefing the Senators, the Project Leader, Mr. Werner Frohwitter said the project was one in which “citizens take their energy supply into their own hands” as they contributed money to build bio-gas plants which use slurry and manure from their pigs and cows and wind farms.

He added that though the village has a population of 140 people, it hosts about 4,000 visitors yearly comprising students, politicians, researchers, scholars and journalists who want to learn about how the people’s efforts led to the generation of 10mw of electricity, from which they sell the excess to the national power grid. The said Feldheim is now a community which produces “safe, local, economic and ecological supply of heat and electricity organised by and under the responsibility of the citizens independent from the grids of conventional power utility companies”.

The Senate delegation, on return to Berlin on Wednesday night, also had a discussion with Mr. Thomas Silberhorn, the Parliamentary State Secretary to the Federal Minister for Economic Co-operation and Development on how to foster economic exchange between the European giant and Nigeria.
