Like many developing nations, Nigeria has experienced prolonged electricity supply shortages for decades. As a result, the government has implemented several policies and reforms to tackle the issue, including privatisation, unbundling, and tariff adjustments. This paper critically reviews Nigeria's electricity policies, highlighting its strengths and weaknesses. The study adopts a mixed-method approach, combining a review of relevant literature, official documents, and interviews with experts in the field. The findings suggest that while some policies have had positive impacts, others have failed to address critical challenges in the sector. Although progress has been made in improving electricity access and supply, much remains to ensure a sustainable and reliable electricity supply in Nigeria. The paper concludes by highlighting some key policy recommendations that could help overcome the sector's challenges.
