“Following some apparent infractions in the Rural Electrification Agency, the Minister of Power Engr Sale Mamman has directed the Managing Director of the Agency, Ms Damilola Ogunbiyi to proceed on indefinite suspension with immediate effect,” Artimas said.

“Consequently, the Minister has directed an immediate investigation into the activities of the Agency towards repositioning it for better service delivery.”

The REA was established to increase electricity access to rural and underserved clusters across the country by developing off-grid electrification strategies.

Prior to her appointment in 2017, Ogunbiyi was the general manager of the Lagos State Electricity Board.

In October, Antonio Guterres, UN secretary-general, announced the appointment of Ogunbiyi as chief executive officer of the organisation’s Sustainable Energy for All (SEforAll).
