Feb 22, 2015 – Pictures: Jonathan Recommissioned Obasanjo Project, Olorunsogo Power Plant In Ifo Ogun State Completed By OBJ In 2007 – Dele Momodu
Ovation Magazine publisher on Sunday blasts President Jonathan for recommissioning a project completed by Ex-President Aremu Olusegun Obasanjo back in 2007.
Dele Momodu rubbished Jonathan’s today on Instagram by describing the recently commissioned Olorunsogo II Power Generation Plant project as a scam.
Anyone who knows anything about the Nigerian power industry knows that the 3 Generation plants in Omotosho, Papalanto and Geregu are the flagship Nigerian Integrated Power Projects (NIPP) projects of the Obasanjo administration. It’s the same projects they accuse Obasanjo of spending billions on and we still didn’t have power (an ignorant allegation championed then by Hon. Ndidi Elumelu).
The present governor of Cross River Liyel Imoke was the force behind these projects as Obasanjo‘s adviser on Power and NIPP coordinator and later Power Minister and I remember US company General Electric supplied the gas turbines.
Jonathan has been working non stop to add more projects to his portfolio less than 6 weeks to the election.
This week alone, he met with Yoruba leaders, Islamic clerics, Lagos market women, commissioned 4 newly bought Army warships and then moved on to Ogun state to recommission Obasanjo’s project.
This is a pure case of Political orijo by a desperate power-hungry politician.
