Speaking in Lagos at a stakeholders’ meeting, Dikki said the need to make the power sector more competitive and vibrant is imperative for the growth of the economy.

The meeting, which had the Minister of Power, works and housing, Mr Babatunde Fashola, the Chief Executive Officers of Eko ElectricityDistribution Company(EKEDC),Oladele Amoda, Ikeja Electric, Mr Abiodun Ajifowobaje, and other stakeholders, was at the instance of the management of Egbin Power Company Plc.
