VICE CHAIRMAN

HON. MOHAMMED WAKIL,OON, FNIM​

Hon. Wakil was appointed as the Honourable Minister of State for Power by President Dr. Goodluck Ebele jonathan GCFR, a call to national duty which is not meant for the faint hearted but can only be undertaken by a man of his onions, to implement the transformation agenda of the President. To say that his short stay at the Ministry of Power was eventful would be a disservice to the immeasurable transformation he brought to bear in the performance of his duties. Among his unparalled achievements during his short stay was the formulation and implementation of a National Policy for the revival and deepening of the renewable energy policy in Nigeria, Facilitation of a policy document on the achievement of 25% renewable energy tariff for power generation. These policies among other drastic transformations in the Nigerian power sector brought about an unprecedented surge in the interest of private investors in the renewable energy sector of the Nigerian economy.

These policies among other drastic transformations in the Nigerian power sector brought about an unprecedented surge inthe interest of private investors in the renewable energy sector of the Nigerian economy. “POWER WAKIL” as he was affectionately called by the teeming admirers of his deft touches, also undertook a more radical approach in the area of rural electrification projects, and as a good soldier who never leaves a man behind, a true son of the soil of Barno state, who also holds the catholically accepted saying that charity begins at home, he employed his political and philanthropic weight in attracting laudable electrification projects to his home front.
