The inadequate electricity generation in Nigeria is the major reason for her economic woes. From the literature some of the problems affecting power generation in Nigeria are lack of policy continuity, drought, Militant activities and corruption. However the degree of impact each of the problem has on power generation varies. Therefore there a need to develop a tool that will identify critical problems such that power generation managers’ will use bulk of the meagre available resources in addressing the more critical ones. In this paper a tool which combine Multi-Objective Optimisation on the basis of Ratio Analysis (MOORA) technique with Analytical Hierarchy Process (AHP) is proposed for the prioritisation of the problems affecting power generation in Nigeria. The technique is illustrated with a numerical example developed from data from experts. From the result of the analysis, poor maintenance of power generation infrastructure, militant activities and corruption are the most critical problems hampering power infrastructure development in Nigeria. The proposed technique have been proven to be effective in prioritising power generation challenges as it produces almost completely same result with well-known mathematical techniques in literature.
