Abstract:The Nigerian government proposes an electricity reform program, which relies on privatization and free market competition to transform the country's electricity supply industry into one that meets Nigeria's electric power needs in the twenty-first century and beyond. The constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, however, mandates the government to ensure that its economic policies maximize the welfare of every citizen and to provide public assistance in that respect where necessary. This thesis assesses the extent to which the electricity reform program meets these constitutional requirements. The thesis finds that these requirements are not met for a variety of reasons, chief among which is the failure to situate electricity reform within the Nigerian socio-economic and legal landscape. The thesis argues that a right to the judicial review of measures designed to promote access to affordable electricity is one way of ensuring that the constitutional requirements are met.
