How it will help
Plugging Africa’s power gap is crucial for its economic growth, and as the region’s biggest economy, Nigeria plays a critical role.
The 450 MW of power the Azura-Edo Independent Power Project will generate, will help support Nigeria's population growth; estimated to reach 230 million within the next 20 years, and create over 1,000 local jobs.
It's part of our USD5 billion commitment to Power Africa, the US government-led campaign to promote electricity across Sub-Saharan Africa.
