Abstract: This study analyzes the productivity change in Nigeria's power sector from 2004-2008, Applying the Malmquist index with the input technological bias. The results show that on average, the Nigerian power sector becomes both more efficient and experience technological improvements. Furthermore, the assumption of Hicks neutral technological change is not suitable and therefore the traditional growth accounting method is not appropriate for analyzing changes in productivity for Nigeria power sector. Policy implications are derived.
