    November 30, 2022 - bne Intellinews


      Thirty-six Nigerian state governors are threatening to take the country’s federal government to court in order to stop the privatization of 10 power plants.

      The governors, under the aegis of the Nigeria Governors’ Forum (NGF), have rejected the view the power plants that are part of the National Integrated Power Projects (NIPPs).

      The governors’ decision to oppose the privatisation follows a virtual meeting of the NGF, and was announced by chairman Governor Aminu Tambuwal on November 22.

      Following the move, NGF has successfully received a court order pausing the sale Niger Delta Power Holding Company Limited (NDPHCL).

      “The Forum… instructed its lawyers to approach the Federal High Court which, at present has issued a court order restraining all the parties in the suit from taking any step or action that will make or render the outcome of the motion on notice seeking for interlocutory injunction nugatory,” the NGT statement said.
