NESPAK established its Regional Office in the Federal Republic of Nigeria's Capital, Lagos in 1973. The Company got its first breakthrough in Nigeria by securing Water Supply Schemes from Soba, Saminaka and Zonkwa Dams Project in 1974. NESPAK launched joint ventures with the Associated Consulting Engineers (private) Limited by setting up its subsidiary company, the Engineering and Consultancy Associates Nigeria Limited (ECAN) in 1975, which was co-shared by a Nigerian citizen, Alhaji Muhammad Armya'u. ECAN with the active participation of NESPAK handled many consultancy contracts during the Company's 22 years of operations in Nigeria. After the death of Alhaji Armya'u, administrative and financial problems emerged, which finally led to the closure of the NESPAK's Regional Office in Lagos in 1996. NESPAK carried out a total of 26 projects worth US$ 965 million during 22 years of its business operations in the Federal Republic of Nigeria. NESPAK's major area of consultancy services in Nigeria had been the water resources development and the road construction. Currently, NESPAK is rendering consultancy services for the project, Kano River and Hadejia Valley Irrigation Schemes, Dams Safety and Rivers Training in Hadejia Jama'are River Basin in Nigeria. NESPAK is also providing technical assistance for Dam Safety Assurance and Training of Dam & Reservoir Assistance Operation Department and River Basin Development Authority Staff under the Transforming Irrigation Management. Both the projects were awarded by the Nigeria's Federal Ministry of Water Resources in 2016 and 2018 respectively.
