Olusegun says that about 30% of Nigeria architects migrated to Canada in 2022.

Olusegun Ladega, the chief executive officer of Interstate Architects Limited, asserted that in 2022, around 30% of Nigerian architects will have gone to Canada. Ladega revealed that people heading abroad are highly qualified professionals. He claimed that he could count the number of  employees who would work for them and who they would have helped develop their skills because they also have their own internal systems in place for developing human capital. It follows that some of their staff members were trained merely for them to announce their departure.

This indicates that they have spent money training and developing their qualifications. The majority of the time, when architects join a practice, they support them and hire individuals who have the potential to advance in the firm and potentially even end up as partners. So, that is a component of their hiring plan. “We constantly look to hire those who will take over from us,” he continued. Then, after you’ve put money into helping the individual grow, they simply reply, “Thank you very much, sir, but my visa to Canada has come out.” You have therefore created them specifically for Canada.

He is worried about the architects who have left their profession.

Ladega was also concerned about the quantity of architects who had left the field to pursue other opportunities. Due to the exodus of architects to other fields, architectural firms are currently experiencing a staffing crisis. While lamenting the status of the business, he pointed out that the problem extended beyond those who left the country and included those who moved to other fields after receiving training from architectural companies. He asserted that the architectural profession was losing out on private consulting opportunities due to the migration of architects to other industries, particularly the financial sector.

As a result, banks expanding their branch networks across the nation no longer engage private consulting firms; instead, they use their own internal architects. He spoke about how feeling guilty for the first time has made him reflect. Despite the preparations and training done through time, he realized that individuals needed to grow and not everyone will grow with you. Obinna Nwosu, the CEO of CN Architects Limited, said that the transition of experts from one business to another was a natural aspect of life. In a similar spirit, Daniel Thompson, another architect, pointed out that migration occurs regularly in the architectural sector.

Number of unmetered electricity consumers in Nigeria has risen to 7.8m.

According to the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission, there are now more than 7.8 million unmetered electricity users in Nigeria. According to information obtained, there were more unmetered power customers in 2017 than there were in 2021, when there were almost six million of them. The NERC also disclosed that in three months, Nigeria earned an estimated N4.4 billion from the export of energy. It made this disclosure in its most recent first-quarter 2022 report, which was acquired in Abuja on Friday. The enormous metering gap for end-use customers, according to the commission, continues to be a major industry concern. Only 4,740,114 (37.79%) of the 12,542,581 registered energy users as of March 2022, it is anticipated to have been metered.

This suggests that 7,802,467 energy consumers as a whole do not have meters and pay estimated electricity bills. NERC continued, Compared to the 79,978 meters installed in 2021/Q4, a total of 85,510 meters were installed in 2022/Q1. As phase 0 of the National Mass Metering Program comes to an end, there have been fewer quarterly meter installations overall. Comparatively, the rate of net metering decreased from 45.40% metering in December 2021 to 37.79% in March 2022. This can be explained by the fact that distribution firms’, customer database information is continuously updated as a result of ongoing client enumeration.

Six million meters would be deployed nationwide.

However, the commission claimed that it had kept in touch with the appropriate parties to guarantee monthly increases in the metering rate. According to the article, the NERC was also putting in place safeguards to prevent overbilling of customers who were not on a meter by establishing maximum caps on the amount of energy that might be invoiced to an unmetered client in a given time frame. According to the federal government, six million meters will be installed nationally in this year’s first and second quarters to lower the number of unmetered energy consumers in Nigeria. According to the article, the government provided information in a paper from December 2022 that examined how the Nigerian electricity supply industry and power sector performed under the present administration.

There is already brain drain in the land since we have political leaders that selfish and don’t care about the development of this nation called Nigeria. Why won’t architects migrate to Canada and more are still going to jet out of the country.

Many are emigrating from the country due the poor state of the country and bad political leadership. We should be expecting more brain drain if the country situation is not improved. It is not surprising that Olusegun gave a statistics of 30% of architects in Nigeria that have migrated to Canada.

It is unfortunate that some of their employees were trained just for the purpose of them announcing their departure from the company.

Because companies have their own internal mechanisms in place for building human capital, it’s absurd to think that he could predict how many people would work for them and how they would have helped them improve their talents.

Most practices welcome new architects with open arms, and look for candidates with the ability to rise through the ranks and become partners.

When an architect joins a firm, the business usually backs them and hires people who have the potential to rise through the ranks and become partners.

It is to the commission’s credit that they have stated they have maintained communication with the relevant parties in order to guarantee monthly increases in the metering rate.

Due to its terrible state and inadequate governmental leadership, many are emigrating. If the country doesn’t develop, brain drain will continue. Olusegun’s 30% Nigerian architects in Canada number is not shocking.

When necessary things are not done to further their work, our architects go for other countries because they believe that there they would be treated better.
