The Lagos State Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources has said it will hold a power sector stakeholders session on the proposed Lagos State Electricity Policy.
The Commissioner for Energy and Mineral Resources, Mr Olalere Odusote, was quoted in a statement as saying the session slated for next week was aimed at proffering sustainable solutions to power-related issues in Lagos.
He said the policy would serve as a blueprint for the vision to achieve sufficient access to electricity in the state and would also accelerate the ‘Light-up Lagos’ initiative when it becomes operational.
He advised concerned stakeholders to register ahead for the session on a link on the commission’s website.
Odusote was quoted as saying, “The Lagos Electricity Policy is vital to the goals of the T.H.E.M.E.S. agenda of the administration of Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu to make Lagos a 21st-century economy, and will serve as a key driver for the social and economic development aspirations of the state in line with the LASG’s 30-year Development Plan (2021-2051) being developed
