President Tinubu Promises To Remove All Obstacles In Power Sector, Ensure Constant Electricity Nationwide





On Friday, President Bola Ahmed Tinubu swore to keep his campaign promise to guarantee a continuous supply of electricity throughout the nation.


The president underlined his willingness to overcome any challenges standing in the way of a reliable energy supply in Nigeria in a statement released by his Special Advisor to the President for Media & Publicity, Ajuri Ngelale.


Ajuri claims that Tinubu spoke at the Federal Capital Territory, FCT Abuja, 350MW Gwagwalada Independent Thermal Power Plant's (Phase 1) groundbreaking ceremony.


According to the statement, the president promised that his administration would find answers to the numerous problems that the value chain of the electric power industry was facing.


Improved energy production and distribution, according to Tinubu, are essential for progress and a country's expansion.


He urged the NNPC and its partners to deliver the landmark project within the promised three-year completion timeline, insisting that, “three years must be three years.”


“Although the Nigeria Electricity Supply Industry (NESI) is currently characterised by huge supply-gap deficits owing to dilapidated power infrastructure and poor distributions networks, amongst others, this administration is poised to address every power value chain challenge that will significantly relieve the suppressed demand, enhance generation, and improve national peak growth & sustainability far above the hitherto abysmal and unacceptable 5,300MW for over 200 million Nigerians,” the President declared.
