The management of the demand and supply pattern of electrical energy in Nigeria is a complex task that requires highly informative approaches; these approaches should be able to provide adequate models for predicting the future utilization of the energy in order to boost the economy of the nation. This study applied an Artificial Neural Network-based model, often called Radial Basis Function (RBF) network to time-series prediction of electricity consumption in Nigerian using historical data
