High Energy Costs Threatening Nigeria’s Manufacturing Sector

Manufacturers in Nigeria have expressed worries over the rising cost of energy which is directly affecting production ability.

The continuous foreign exchange crisis combined with high energy costs according to them has become a threat to Nigeria’s manufacturing sector which is contributing merely eight per cent to the Gross Domestic Product.

Reports confirmed that no fewer than 50 manufacturers exited the Nigerian market recently due to the forex crisis.

Since many of the companies cannot depend on power distribution companies for energy to use, they resolve to self-generation of more than 14,000 megawatts of electricity.

For this cause, Naija News understands that member companies of the Manufacturers Association of Nigeria spent N639 billion on alternative energy sources between 2014 and 2021.

The manufacturers spent N25bn in 2014, N59bn in 2015 and N129.95bn in 2016, a document gathered by The Punch revealed.

The year-in-year-out figures varied due to the effects of inflation and the number of member companies in the association, among other factors.
