The need to re-tinker educational curriculum with a view to making it more relevant in pursuit of cleaner energy and sustainability goals has been emphasised.

The emphasis was laid on Monday, during a panel session at the maiden Asharami Square, in Lagos.

Chief Commercial Officer, Ikeja Electric, Ogochukwu Onyelucheya, said educational curriculum as it currently is, deal more on theory rather than practical.

Increased knowledge in practical technology she noted will stimulate inventions that can support the sustainability campaign and ensure that new ideas are brought to the fore.

“There is need for us to go back to the basics, to the schools. We must design out curriculum to align with our technological needs. You will need sciences to study engineering and all that but there are people who know so much about IT with no knowledge of sciences, these we must harness” she submitted.

She blamed rising cost of power in Nigeria to increases in price of gas, rising inflation and exchange rates uncertainties.

She encouraged producers to onboard their capacities to the National Grid to bring down costs, noting that if electricity producers are outside the grid, it will be difficult to bring down prices.

Increasing Carbon emission to which Africa is contributing minimally only about  4.8 per cent to global emissions compared to other parts of the world, the challenge of having cleaner energy that will not impact negatively on human health and the ecosystem, has become a source of worry for stakeholders and non-stakeholders alike.

The maiden Asharami Square, which brought under the same roof, experts from all facets of life, aims at increasing awareness on one hand and proffering solutions to ever increasing environmental challenges.
