I have improved the power sector – Fashola
The Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, has said he has improved the power sector in Nigeria.
Speaking in an Interview with the ladies of Your View. The honourable minister said:
He said: The electricity problems we face are not unique to our country I don’t want to hear the story of power is the problem, we are on two sides of the river, you gain from us and we gain from you. I don’t repeat what people say, I do mine. I have improved on what I met, the power production have improved and will continue to improve”.
The minister cited “low passage of the budget” as the prime reason for the non-implementation.
Responding to a caller who threatened to go to court for not having power supply for 3 months in Rosanwo street Lagos. He said, “going to court will not give you power, all you need is patients, Surulere at the moment has nearly a constant power supply, we will get there soon, We are not perfect yet please understand that this is going to be a step by step process.”
Nigerian households would enjoy an improved power supply very soon. We are working round the clock to solve the power supply problem. We are going to get more more meters this year.
How we get equipment, transformers, and all of the equipment needed within the next cycle of 60 to 90 days is critical so that we don’t lose all that energy that is coming from the raining season,” he added.
