Nigeria, the most populous country in Africa, has the second-largest off-grid energy market in the world, trailing only behind India. According to the International Energy Agency in 2019, around 77 million Nigerians are either underserved or completely lack access to the national electricity grid.
This has affected development one way or the other, especially in terms of foreign investment in the country. A lot of foreign business have parked out of the country because of the high cost of production brought about by the poor electricity. Those cut of the national electricity grid would feel not part of the nation because basic infrastructural development that should have rubbed on the citizens of that area as a result of constant electricity won’t be there.
