LAGOS, (CAJ News) – THE Federal Ministry of Power has endorsed the West African Power Industry Convention (WAPIC) scheduled for Nigeria’s populous city Lagos before the end of the year.

The event is scheduled for November 24-25.

Permanent Secretary at the Ministry of Power, Ambassador Dr Godknows Igali, said the success of the previous event held in 2014 had given the Ministry the confidence to accord the upcoming one the necessary support.

“It will avail stakeholders the opportunity to appreciate the gains recorded in the country’s power sector,” said Igali.

During the 12th edition of this regional conference and expo, WAPIC will once again gather government, utilities, consultants and investors to discuss the challenges of local markets, capacity building and investment.

Igali said the convention was expected to be a strategic hub for stakeholders looking for collaboration and joint solutions to the region’s biggest challenges.

“The Ministry is proud to be in partnership for the successful hosting of this year’s event and also commend the organisers for support from corporate bodies and organizations.”

The West African Power Industry Convention is organised by Spintelligent, leading Cape Town-based trade exhibition and conference organiser, and the African office of Clarion Events Ltd, based in the UK. – CAJ News
