It provides a great opportunity to network with policy makers, thought leaders and global investors and to gain valuable insight into the latest market developments.
Says Managing Director & CEO Oti Ukpai: “Our mission for this year’s WAPS is to bring industry experts that will provide the right information at the conference and to engage the audience on the latest projects and technological solutions that will add value to the industry. We had a record 250 attendees at last year’s summit but our expectations for this year’s WAPS isn’t only to see large number of delegates but to see industry professionals however few that will engage on discussions to providing a long lasting solutions to power crisis in Nigeria. My perspective on the solution of power crisis in Nigeria is privatization which Nigeria is already doing and also to increase power generating companies within the country.”
