The Na­tional Power Train­ing In­sti­tute of Nige­ria (NAPTIN) has com­menced train­ing of 36 elec­tric­ity work­ers from the Liberia Elec­tric­ity Com­pany (LEC) on power gen­er­a­tion, dis­tri­bu­tion and trans­mis­sion.

The four-week pro­gramme which is spon­sored by West African Power Pool (WAPP) in col­lab­o­ra­tion with the United States Agency for In­ter­na­tional De­vel­op­ment is aimed at pro­mot­ing West African coun­tries’ in­te­gra­tion on power sec­tor train­ing and to share ex­pe­ri­ence among West African coun­tries.

Speak­ing at the launch of the pro­gramme in La­gos, the in­sti­tute’s act­ing Di­rec­tor-Gen­eral, Al­haji Ahmed Nagode, dis­closed that WAPP would help grow and im­prove tech­ni­cal skills of LEC per­son­nel, adding that the trainees would in turn use ac­quired knowl­edge to re­solve their na­tion’s power chal­lenges.

Nagode said that the course was de­signed in three mod­els with 18 per­son­nel to be trained at NAPTIN Re­gional Train­ing Cen­tre in La­gos, while the other 18 per­son­nel would be trained at Kanji Dam. As­set Man­age­ment, Aig­bovbioise AigI­moukhuede, noted that they guar­an­tee com­pet­i­tive yields as an in­vest­ment team with over 50 years com­bined ex­pe­ri­ence will en­sure funds are de­liv­ered on the ex­pec­ta­tions of in­vestors.
