Nineteen firms have emerged as top bidders and reserved bidders for 80 percent shares in 10 thermal plants under the National Integrated Power projects (NIPPs).

The successful bidders were among the 42 bidders that, according to the Niger Delta Power Holding Company Plc (NDPHC) and its transaction advisers, CPCS Transcom International Limited, were technically qualified and partook in the financial bidding phase of the transaction which held on Friday in Abuja.
In his address, NDPHC Managing Director, Mr. James Olotu said the bidding for the NIPP plants is a timely intervention in the power sector. He however noted that government is privatising 80 percent of the plants’ equity but still retains 20 percent in ownership terms.

“You will agree with me that the process of privatising these 10 power plants has been more than transparent,” he said.
Suswam maintained that the sustained transparency effort is meant to ensure the attraction of more investors into the economy.
Earlier, the Minister of State, Power, Hon. Mohammed Wakil said the federal government will spare no effort to make the power sector environment attractive to investors. He reiterated the sector agencies’ commitment to working effectively and giving their cooperation to the emerging bidders.

The Chairman, Technical Committee of National Council on Privatisation (NCP), Mr. Peterside Atedo, at the sidelines, said the outcome of the transaction would be presented to the joint transaction handlers before announcing the winners.
Atedo noted that on announcing the winners, the payment deadline of 25% and later payment of 75% acquisition payment would also be declared.
