ABSTRACT
The article presents the views of Professor Iyorwuese Hagher, Nigeria's ambassador to Mexico, on Nigeria's chronic power problems. Hagher, former power and steel minister of Nigeria, is promoting complete deregulation of Nigeria's energy market. He sees deregulation as the solution to the country's chronic power supply problem. Hagher believes that there has to be more involvement and commitment between the Nigerian government and the people if energy output in the country is to reach 20,000 megawatts.
