According to the 2019 annual reports, the DFID and world bank supported the welfare outcomes of the under-served communities in metropolis state and Northern Federal Republic of Nigeria by creating a major monetary contribution towards the alternative energy electrification of public establishments, like colleges and hospitals. The intervention is predicted by the year 2020 to confirm improved welfare outcomes for over 2.8 million individuals exploitation domestic solar photovoltaic (PV) systems with 190,000 college pupils and 4.7 million clinic patients enjoying public institutions with PV systems, making over 3000 jobs and guarantee greater effectiveness of DFID’s generating enterprises within the renewable energy sector.
My immediate set up upon my come back to Nigeria is to work closely with the Federal Ministry of Finance Rural Electrification Agency, that recently embarked on a campaign referred to as Nigeria Electrification Project. I commit to use my influence as a Chevening scholar to expand this campaign by operating with the government, DFID and collaborating with different Non-profit organizations to tackle incessant electricity by generating enterprises within the renewable energy sector, therefore serving to the country meet one amongst its millennium developments.
Within subsequent 2 years, I attempt to be part of the United Nations. The UN has executed many projects development. My goal is to guide a vigorous team centered on the UN Human Settlements Programme (UN-Habitat), in partnership with the federal government of Nigeria, conducting a hand-on coaching in energy efficiency and renewable energy technologies, green entrepreneurship and enterprise development for as several selected youths drawn from across all states in Nigeria.
The expertise and skills gained from UN would be the stepping stone to the accomplishment of my long run career goals, that is to be a visionary which will pioneer a bunch of individuals to coach and develop youths, for capacity development through the availability of coaching in energy efficiency and renewable technologies. This mission towards development would be as follows; first, i will be able to improve awareness and a more robust understanding of renewable energy usage. Second, i will be able to use solar to power industrial areas of the country in order that the producing and agricultural sectors will improve. Such a career set up needs skilled accomplishment, leadership capability and international exposure. The Chevening scholarship will enable me to satisfy these needs and additionally provide me the chance to realize the proper influence and network required to attain my dreams.
My future career aim is to be a number one research worker in renewable energy with wonderful business insight capable of driving performance enhancements. I commit to focus my analysis vocation to envision a lot of Nigerian roof areas occupied by solar PV panels, solar water heaters, mini wind turbines. In ten years, African nation can have way more solar farms, solar off-grid solutions, solar hybrid solutions and solar mini-grids. I see African nation counting its cumulative generated alternative energy within the 1000s of megawatt from multiple solar farm projects serving to rural communities by revitalizing electricity supply through clean renewable energy source.
