How do you think this partnership with TE could benefit people?
For NAPTIN's instructors, it's the opportunity to have industry expertise, with specialization in particular products which should greatly enhance their performance in class and in hands-on sessions.

How do you see the future power connections in Nigeria?
I believe renewable energy like coal, solar, wind and mini hydro are handy and will be more and more developed.
In Nigeria, we still have a lot of unconnected power for our consumers - only 65% are connected to the power grid. There is a big opportunity for the remaining 35%. Potential power sources could be hydro/thermal. Between the emergence of alternative sources and opportunity to connect all consumers the future is highly promising.
