Good governance is central to building competitive economies, reducing corruption, creating jobs, wealth and eliminating poverty in country like Nigeria confronted with declining infrastructures.

The acting Director-General of the Bureau of Public Enterprises (BPE), Dr Vincent Onome Akpotaire, said so in Abuja at a one-day corporate governance workshop, organised by the Bureau in partnership with the Nigeria Infrastructure Advisory Facility (NIAF) for directors of Successor Distribution and Generation Companies in Nigeria.

In his remarks, the Power Sector Team Leader for NIAF, Professor Chidi Onyia, said that the sector called on stakeholders to play their roles efficiently. He urged inauguration of directors of the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC), saying absence of the board was causing problems in the sector.
