Nigeria has been experiencing challenges in the distribution of power to the whole country in the past decades. As a result, more than half of Nigeria's population is affected by the ineffectiveness of the distribution of electricity which lowers their standard of living. As the country's power sector experienced a steady growth after its independence in 1960, it was anticipated at the time that, at that rate of growth and development, most of Nigeria should have been electrified by now. However, challenges in the distribution of electricity have persisted and this has negatively affected the economy and living standard of the country. From the management perspective, this research looks at the situation of the distribution of electricity in Nigeria from the year 2005 to 2015. Specifically, it will analyses management challenges affecting the distribution of electricity in the country. It is well documented how Nigeria is currently facing an electricity crisis despite all the government efforts to provide adequate power to the citizens. In the distribution of electricity in Nigeria, the research will look at how the planning of the organization is been done so as to ensure effective power delivery to the country. The research will further look at how the management manages the organization and how it is being controlled for effective power distribution. In this research, I shall use qualitative and quantitative research techniques. Secondary qualitative and quantitative data will be used in carrying out this research. Published books, journals, newspaper articles, and government policies shall be critically examined in order to produce a well-informed report. Before the research is conducted, the appropriate consent from the University of the Western Cape will be sought to ensure that all protocols are strictly adhered to.
