The management of Nigeria's energy resources presently, lies under
the control of many organisations and institutions, amongst which is
the Energy Commission of Nigeria, established as the apex organ of
government for energy policy formulation and coordination. It was in
recognition of the crucial role of energy, as earlier highlighted,
that the government established a high powered Board for the
Commission, consisting of the President, C-in-C, as the Chairman
and with Ministers charged with the responsibility for the following
matters (as contained in the Act) as members:-
- Agriculture and Rural Development
- Foreign Affairs
- Finance and Economic Development
- Petroleum Resources
- Power and Steel
- Science and Technology
- Water Resources
The Director-General of the Energy Commission of Nigeria is the
Secretary to the Commission. The Commission has power to regulate
its own proceedings.
The Board has the responsibility for the general management of
the Commission while the day-to-day running of the affairs of the Commission is the responsibility of the Director-General. Also, the Act provides a Technical Arm for the Commission known as the Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) .
