How Nigerians Can Overcome Power Supply Problems —Gbadegesin

Oluwatosin Gbadegesin, an electrical contractor and a graduate in electronics and electrical engineering from Olabisi Onabanjo University, in this interview with SEYI SOKOYA, discusses how to solve Nigeria’s electricity supply problems.

It was in the news that electricity production fell again. How do you think the electricity problem in Nigeria can be solved?

I think we have greedy people as leaders; they are old enough to make way for young people with brilliant skills to make a tangible difference. There are various solutions to the electricity problem, but there is no one to fund young talent who can come up with a solution to the problem in Nigeria. There are different ways to generate electricity. For example, solar energy is a form of electricity generation and this has solved the problems of many Nigerians.

IT is rare to find electrical engineering graduates practicing what they studied in school. What prompted you to put into practice what you studied in school?

I am very passionate about electrical engineering. I love him so much. Another thing is the foresight I had when I was a student. I anticipated that in Nigeria there are no jobs available for fresh graduates. So either you create a job for yourself or you travel abroad where there are job opportunities. In addition, I have a mentor, Dr. Oreofe Williams, who mentors thousands of talents around the world at the City of Talents. He always encourages us (his mentees) to be self-sufficient. Eventually, I discovered that even people who are uneducated in this field make money from electrical installations. So, I thought it would be a shame if I graduated in electronics and electrical engineering and didn’t practice it.

Can you tell us about TeePuff Electrical Engineering and how the initiative could solve electricity problems in the country?

TeePuff Electrical Engineering is an initiative that deals with all kinds of electrical installations. He is a creative who engages in all kinds of electrical services such as home wiring (either surface or conduit). We also install solar systems and inverters. TeePuff Electrical Engineering also builds its own change type and we also build a PV inverter which is very rare to find. The PV inverter works efficiently with the solar system without batteries.

How did you get the initiative and what are the challenges so far?

TeePuff Electrical Engineering started by providing small electrical services in my neighborhood and I was saving on small incomes. I started with N5,000 to acquire basic tools and equipment and God was helping me until I started getting contracts and referrals from clients. To the glory of God today, I now have my own office which is well equipped. I want more clients to prove my expertise in the initiative. Recently, I installed a solar system at City of Talents, Awo Jesu Film Estate and the management was impressed with my services. I don’t want to travel out of the country, as I believe I have a lot to offer my dear homeland.

Many Nigerians are turning to solar and inverters since the power system has continued to deteriorate. As an expert, what should Nigerians know about change?

Solar installations and inverters are a solution to the problem of inconsistent power supply. It saves money compared to the cost of fuel for the generator. It also reduces noise pollution caused by generators, however, solar installation can be very expensive if you want quality service. But, we have a system to make it easy and affordable for customers.

If the government can fund young talent and get the right equipment to produce a mega solar system, communities will be supplied 24/7. But the problem is that our government is not ready. There are various ways to have stable electricity, but they plunge Nigerians into total darkness. It is obvious that our government is the main epileptic diet problem.

What is your advice to the government?

The government should make room for young people to help themselves; they shouldn’t just provide jobs for young people, they should help talented young people, because talent is dying every day. Many young people are currently into Internet fraud, some are into drugs and other vices.

What would you advise young Nigerians?

I want to appeal to my young comrades to get their permanent voter cards (PVC) to vote against the old and vote for the reasonable young. Old people can’t lead us anymore, there’s more to life. The ASUU has been on strike for almost six months and nothing has been done. Old people send their children abroad or to private schools where there is no strike, they don’t value young people at all. So my advice to other young people is to vote massively. Enough of staying home during elections and ranting about the wrong leader.

The PDP spokesperson recalled how the opposition party had repeatedly warned that the APC government had ceded sovereignty over much of our country to terrorists, “many of whom were imported into our country by the APC”.

He further stated, “In the video, in a brazen manner, terrorists as non-state actors boldly showed their faces, bragging, admitting and confirming their participation in the escape from Kuje prison, whose some were ex-convicts who were either imprisoned or incarcerated. awaiting trial for their previous act of terrorism against our country.

“Nigerians can also recall the admissions of Kaduna State Governor Mallam Nasir el-Rufai that the APC government knows the plans and whereabouts of the terrorists but failed to act.

According to Ologunagba, around 18,000 Nigerians have been killed by terrorists between 2020 and 2022 “as the criminals continue to be emboldened by the failures and obvious complicity of the APC and to which the PDP had always drawn attention” .

“It’s not politics; it is about humanity and leadership, which is sadly and sadly lacking in our country right now,” he said.

The PDP added that it is appalled by “the lame response of the seemingly helpless, distraught and deflated Buhari presidency, in which it told a dying nation that President Buhari “has done everything and even more than expected. he was expected as Commander-in-Chief by way of sustaining the morale, materiel and equipment of the military…”

“This is a direct admission of incapacity and failure on the part of the Buhari presidency and the APC. At such a time, in other climates, the president directly leads the charge and takes drastic measures to save and protect its citizens.

“In times of adversity, the president transforms himself into a chief comforter to give hope and help to the citizens. Painfully, Nigeria does not have a president who cares and can present himself as the chief comforter of the people.

“It has now become very imperative for Nigerians to take notice and realize that the only solution to this unfortunate situation is to hold the APC government accountable. We must unite as people regardless of our political, ethnic and nuns to resist the fascist tendencies of the APC administration.

Ologunagba called for an urgent meeting of the National Council of State to advise on the way forward in the face of worsening insecurity in the country.

“Our nation must not fall. The resilient Nigerian spirit and positive attitude must be rekindled by all for the President to immediately and without further delay accede to the request of the PDP and other well-meaning Nigerians to convene an extraordinary session of the National Assembly. Council of State to find a lasting solution since the president is, by his own admission, at the end of his tether,” the PDP spokesman said.
