A statement by the spokesperson for the All Progressives Congress, APC, Mr. Lai Mohammed, has said that the stability in power generation was attributable to the integrity that was brought into governance by President Muhammadu Buhari.
It should be noted that before the new government came on board, power generation in Nigeria was between 3,000MW and 3,500MW. But in the past two months, electricity generation has continued to stay above 4,500MW.
Power supply has been regarded as the bedrock on which Buhari will fulfill other campaign promises. According to Punch, Mr. Lai Mohammed revealed this while speaking at 2015 Electricity Market Summit in Abuja on Thursday, 20th of August.
“I say it anywhere I go that even though we have not added one single megawatt to power, there has been improvement. My colleagues in the PDP will say no; that’s not true. But I maintain that this improvement is as a result of the kind of integrity that President Buhari has brought to leadership.
“Also, there has been a reduction in the cases of gas pipelines vandalism. Furthermore, the TCN (Transmission Company of Nigeria), which used to have about 22 systemic power failures often times, now records about six or seven of such cases. So, what we have today is that we have a leadership that is inspiring Nigerians and making them to believe again in their country. We have a leadership that is promising to reward merit.”
