All Nigerians are privy to the reality of our struggling power supply levels and service delivery at different levels of the power sector, since the privatisation of the sector we have all also observed the continued failure with respect to expectations and the blame game experienced at every turn. Using this years TEDx Salon event as a platform, we have themed our power sector focused event ReCONNECT. This we believe will afford the sector and its customers and opportunity to change perspectives, open up new depths of understanding and drive a renewed urgency in within us to drive our collective development through improved power supply.
We exist in amazing times, everyday we are met with innovations from different parts of the globe which are designed to push the limits of human capacity and test our appreciation of human ingenuity. Truth is that those innovations are created to fix problems within the societies in which they are found, ReCONNECT challenges us to redefine our priorities with respect to proffering solutions for challenges which we face in Nigeria. We look to drive homegrown innovations and solutions for challenges, issues and problems which have grown and festered locally. Let us use this opportunity to re-engage our objectives.
