Chamber seeks Poland’s support in power sector devt

By Udo Ibuot
LAGOS — PRESIDENT of the Poland-Nigeria Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Chief Julius Ogunyemi, has urged the Federal Government to consider Poland’s initiative of revamping the nation’s power and steel sectors.

He said Poland’s proposal was to revamp Nigeria’s epileptic power supply sector and run over a period of  10 years before handing them over.

Noting that the Polish desire to revamp the nation’s economy was snubbed by the government in 1995, Ogunyemi said the current government in Poland was still determined to bail Nigeria out of her current economic problems.

The chamber’s president who made the remarks at a symposium to mark the death of the Polish President, Mr. Lech Kaczynki, his wife and 94 others, in a plane crash last week, said the late  president was considering the deployment of Polish technology towards the revamping of Nigeria’s railway system.

He stressed that a Polish outfit was also a technical and financial partner with Marubeni Mitsubishi of Japan in the maintenance of the Kaduna refinery, adding that the private sector should utilise Poland’s technical and energy expertise to revamp the nation’s economy.
