The Kwara State Government has reiterated its commitment to offering long-lasting solutions to the declining electricity supply, seeking synergy with Dapik Energy to formulate electricity market policy that will enhance economic growth, foster the development of human capital and create enabling environment for businesses and future investors in the State.

The Commissioner for Energy, Engr. AbdulAzeez Kola AbdulGaniy stated this today during a proposal presentation by Dapik Energy at the Ministry’s Conference Hall. 

Engr. AbdulGaniy said “We are ready to partner with you because we want a Kwara with a sustainable power market that will enable investors to come in order to create more employment opportunities and improve human capital development.“

In their remarks, the Director, Personnel, Finance and Supply, Alhaji Hassan Taiye Afodun and the Director Electrical Engineering, Engr. Anthony Ayodeji Alago, appreciated the Chief Executive Officer, Dapik Energy, Mr. Dapo Adedoyin, for the innovative presentation which will enable Kwara State to have a sustainable energy market that will increase the revenue generation of the State.

Earlier, the Chief Executive Officer, Dapik Energy, Mr. Dapo Adedoyin, said “We want to develop Kwara State Electricity Market Policy, which will give us capabilities to generate, transmit and distribute electricity in the State through access to natural gas."


"This is in line with the 2023 Electricity Bill that was signed into law by the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, which gives the State the power to generate, transmit and distribute electricity for improved development", Mr. Adedoyin added. 

He therefore called for collaboration with the Federal Electrification Agency (FEA), Rural Electrification Agency (REA), Distribution Companies and other stakeholders in the energy sector.
