Fashola To Nigerians: Vote APC In 2015 To Get 247 Electricity Supply
July 13, 2014 – Fashola To Nigerians: Vote APC In 2015 To Get 24/7 Electricity Supply
Babatunde Raji Fashola, the current governor of Lagos state vowed on Friday that Nigerians will enjoy 247 access to electricity ONLY if they can vote PDP out of power come 2015.
“I agree with you that it is possible to generate electricity and to make sure that everybody in this country has electricity. I agree with you that it is simple; what we have done in Lagos within the areas where we are constrained shows that it can be done. But the only way that you and I will have electricity in this country will be to vote out the PDP.
“In 16 years, after spending billion of naira, we cannot switch on electricity and in seven years we have created four plants, it shows that something is missing. So, unless you vote for All Progressive Congress it is going to be difficult to have electricity.
“They started from Vision 2020-20 and I told you then that they were having nightmares; there was no vision. They moved to 7-point agenda and now they are transforming…
“Let me also say that in the last seven years, ask how many new power plants the federal government has commissioned, because sometimes the power that is coming to Lagos at most is 1,000 mega watts; oftentimes it’s 600 mega watts.”
Fashola said Nigeria’s electricity problem was caused by President Jonathan’s lack of ideas.
This was made known on Friday during his 2600 days in office celebration at LTV Event Centre (De-Blue Roof) in Ikeja Lagos.
