Infrastructure and Utilities
Improving Nigeria’s infrastructure and utilities is a national priority and Olanwiun Ajayi is right at the forefront of the key developments in this area in the last few decades.
The dedicated infrastructure team includes partners that pioneered limited recourse financing techniques and private sector participation in public utilities in Nigeria; and associates who routinely advise on public private partnerships.
Our experience with Nigeria’s utilities predates reforms and developments in the telecommunications, aviation and railway sectors. More recently, we have facilitated the acquisition of five out of six electricity generation companies and six out of eleven electricity distribution companies.
Having worked for supranationals governments and corporate entities on some of the most significant infrastructure projects in Nigeria, we are able to see the big picture. Not only can we help manage projects that are often huge in scale; we help minimise the risk and delays on projects and are able to avoid, and where necessary, resolve the legal, commercial and regulatory issues that arise from these projects.
