with electricity. Despite the abundance of renewable energy sources well suited for rural electricity generation, the overall rate of rural electrification stands at just 26%. This paper explores across a spectrum of 17 senior federal government executives in agencies tasked with managing the nation‟s electricity sector, specific issues affecting the uptake of renewable energy technologies in rural electrification in Nigeria. By qualitative methodology, through document analysis and semi-structured interview, data was collected and analyzed. Findings show that though renewable energy is recognized as very important for achieving rural electrification in a fossil fuel rich nation like Nigeria, one major obstacle against renewable energy powered rural electrification is the absence of a champion within the bureaucracy; one who could rally the available resources and current policies to adequate action.
