Liberalization of the Nigerian Electricity Industry: The Difficult Transition from Monopoly to Market, co-supervised by Professors Anatole BOUTEand Sandra MARCO COLINO.
RESEARCH INTERESTS AND AIMS
I am interested in Oil & Gas Law, Electricity Law, Competition Law, International Trade and Finance and Tax Law. With my thesis, I hope to apply the principles of competition law and economic regulation to the Nigerian electricity industry so that the benefits of liberalization- lower prices, better quality, more choice, innovation and companies with better global outlook or reach-might be achieved.
