Ghana plans to export electricity to Nigeria

Ghanaian president John Mahama, said that there are plans by his govt to start exporting electricity generated in Ghana to Nigeria and other West African countries. He said this while speaking at the Global Business and Economic Forum in Dubai yesterday October 1st, 
"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 said.
He said to achieve this, his country secured export-import financing from China and also got special funds from Abu Dhabi to commence series of power generation projects. He added that development of a third hydropower dam was already at an advanced stage in Ghana.

These Ghanaians are serious oo. I wish our govt will take this as a challenge. As the purported biggest economy in Africa I think we should be the one exporting electricity to others.

Lets wait and see. Even the Banana Island of Ghana which is East Legon in Accra, power is not stable. Kumasi, Sekondi and other cities still experience unstable power supply. There is improvement in Ghana no doubt, but it is an absolute lie that there is uninterrupted power supply all over the country.The hype is just too much ever since the likes of Dele Momodu relocated to the country. No doubt we have lots of challenges in Nigeria but despite that,It has not gotten to that stage when Nigeria will now depend on Ghana electricity. Assuming it is SOuth Africa, I won't even bother. Ghana wey dey our backyard for here? Iam a regular visitor to the West Africa Civil society Institute, East legon almost every two month. Ghana has been rationing electricity since February due to shortage of gas supply from Nigeria.As advanced as US is, it also imports electricity from Mexico and Canada because it is cheaper to buy from those places compared to the cost of generating within the US. Except if Ghana wanna export to Nigeria just to generate income since Nigeria is a big market where anything sells either fake or original,lolz

The man is an idiot. John Mahama is the worst President Ghana has ever had. Over the years Ghana made giant strides which this man has destroyed in just a couple of years. For the first time since Ghana Independence, people are now buying generators. He should fix Ghana's electricity and economy first.

People make comments without facts. The truth is; economically Ghana is feeling the brunt now. The country was bailed out by IMF. The county relies on foreign aid to cushion capital deficits. He is a joker and sound somewhat delusional.
Ghana generates less than 1300MW of power. Ghana is experiencing load-shedding today because of reduced gas supply from Nigeria via the West African Gas Pipeline. How can you supply electricity to a country that determines if you have power or not!
For him to make such statement they must have had enough power; say 50000MW, unfortunately they generate less than the requirement of Alimosho LGA in Lagos.

You people should stop insulting Nigeria some area in Nigeria today do get light more than Ghana and this their president is a clown that does not know anything at all. He can not even govern Ghana a small country like Eight State in Nigeria and in his watch Ghana Economy have run down and down and he is seriously looking for avenue to make money. Nigeria will be better off with light in three-four years time I am sure of it with what I saw last month am in Nigeria. I am in Ghana and they are having light problems since last year and still having the same problem in some areas till date so what is he saying. Nigeria have never asked him for help and never never applied for it and will not because the light issue in Nigeria is going towards the right direction that I have never seen in my whole life so you people should first travel or read about other countries activities and system before coming to comment unnecessarily.

Even if Nigeria is going down they can never be like Nigeria in 100years time which I am 100% sure of it and we are helping them allot and still helping them in so many ways till today so he should stop talking trash. He is just like Jonathan that is not Man enough even Jonathan is better than him in terms of governance the only difference is that their system is functional.

What light do they want to supply when they don't have light 24/7? As I'm writing now, there's currently no light which they have been shuffling everyday for past months. They should attend to their country before poking elsewhere biko.
