Ghana to Export Electricity to Nigeria, Ivory Coast and Others

ghana-electricity-companyGhanaian President John Mahama has announced plans to export several thousand megawatts of electricity to Nigeria, Ivory Coast, and other countries experiencing issues and deficits within their power sectors.

Confirming the developments at the African Global Business and Economic Forum in Dubai this weekend, Mahama said that massive investments in power generation in Ghana by China and other foreign entities have created an excess.

“We have given priority to electricity generation in our country. We have prioritized energy in such a way that we want to become the hub for power production in West Africa. We want to generate electricity to the point that excess power can be exported to Nigeria, Ivory Coast and other countries that have power deficit,” he announced.

Mahama also noted that a third hydropower dam project was in its final stages of completion.

“Where Africa faces some of its challenges lies its biggest opportunities. We are leveraging on public-private sector partnership to build infrastructure. Be it roads, electricity, ports or communication systems; if we create the right environment, investors will come. Creating the right environment that will attract foreign direct investment is key,” Mahama said.
