The power crisis in Nigeria is like a malignant disease, infecting the nation’s economy and causing its citizens untold suffering. Small businesses are especially vulnerable, as they struggle to shoulder the burden of providing their power, while individuals face daily frustrations and hardships. Every day, across Nigeria, the power situation has become like a slow poison, creeping into every corner of life. For businesses, it’s a death by a thousand cuts, as profits dwindle and costs mount. For individuals, it’s a constant reminder of their country's shortcomings, a constant frustration. And for the economy as a whole, it’s a drag on growth, an obstacle to progress. The broader consequences of the situation are far-reaching, affecting everything from the cost of living for ordinary citizens to the overall productivity of the economy. As a result, Nigeria’s ability to develop and grow economically is being seriously undermined by the challenges facing the electricity distribution companies (DisCos). These challenges have created a vicious cycle, in which the inefficiencies of the DisCos are leading to an even greater demand for government intervention, which in turn is further straining the country’s already tight finances.
