Director General/CEO of Energy Commission of Nigeria, Prof. Eli Jidere Bala in Virtual Meetings within the Commission

The activities of government must not be grounded to a halt as a result of coronavirus (Covid-19). This explains the massive deployment of technology of the virtual space by the Director General, Prof. Eli Jidere Bala, to ensure that the activities of government are not stagnated.

The leadership of the six Energy Research Centers as well as the Directors in the Head Office of the Commission continue to meet on strategic policy planning and analysis with a view to navigating administrative issues as well as other matters of national interests and the much cherished National Energy Masterplan for the nation. The Director General has also deployed this same protocol to meet without borders with relevant stakeholders and clients of the Commission.

You may recall that the state of Covid-19 pandemic has led to a shutdown of a number of activities, but the ECN continues to wax stronger in its activities as a result of the instrumentality of the virtual space on facilities hitherto provided with the foresight of the Director General.
