During a presentation by the Managing Director of the Rural Electrification Agency (REA), Mrs. Damilola Ogunbiyi, to members of the Nigerian parliament, it was revealed that no renewable energy firm of Nigerian extraction was prequalified by the REA to bid for the upcoming off-grid projects for nine federal universities and teaching hospitals, OGN reports.

Also, globally recognized power firm, General Electric (GE) reportedly could not make it through the processes as it came a distant third behind two others, Sterling and Wilson, and Metka West Africa to help nine federal universities and teaching hospitals get off the national grid and generate their power independently either through gas or solar sources.

It further disclosed that the likes of Siemens Nigeria Power and Gas, and Finnish corporation – Wartsila Energy Solutions, which were amongst the five originally shortlisted bidders for the first phase of the EPP could not go further as they dropped out along the way on instances of conflict of interest, and inability to meet the prequalification requirements respectively.
