Ezekwesili: My Plan for Nigeria’s Power Sector

Obiageli Ezekwesili, the Presidential candidate of the Allied Congress Party of Nigeria has informed of plan to deliver uninterrupted power supply to Nigerians if elected president in 2019.
Ezekwesili, in a statement on Sunday said her administration would ensure Nigerians have stable electricity in the first four years of her government in the bid to aid business growth in Nigeria.
“From 1999 till date, all the projections made by successive governments to grow the supply of electricity to Nigerians, to either 6,000MW, 10,000MW or 20,000MW, have not been realised.
“The citizens’ desire and willingness to pay an appropriate price of electricity consumed is seen in generators of all shapes and sizes and how much they pay to operate and service these machines.”
“The low power availability from the national grid has meant that corporate entities have to divert a large amount of funds from their core productive areas of focus to this critical area of reliable power supply.”
“The price of this is paid in not being competitive and great loss of production capacities, which further impoverishes the populace.”
“Our vision is to ensure that the Nigerian electricity supply industry becomes fully functional, vibrant and employs hundreds of thousands of young Nigerians, in both the on-grid and off-grid segments,” Ezekwesili said.
