  5. After the blackout,i pray there shld be stable electricity in Benue.especially Gboko Road where i live.

  6. The issue we are discussing here is unstable electricity supply in the entire nation even after 53 years of independence from the British in 1960. We are not here to attack each other unreasonably and senselessly base on tribal sentiments. We the Nigerian people should unite for peace, prosperity and for the progress of our dear nation. You see, our criminal and corrupt politician are always united to embezzle and loot our national treasury and they are never divided based on their various tribes. The shortage or complete absence of electric power is not the issue affecting our good people in the eastern states named in this article. However, it an issue affecting every state in Nigeria today. No state in Nigeria today can boost of 12 hours supply of electricity without any interruption. This is a shame of our dear nation. No nation in the 21st century that cannot supply her people with uninterrupted electric supply cannot have economic progress and prosperity. South Africa, Ghana, Kenya, Egypt and many african countries have risen above electricity challenges. Why is it that Nigerian people are still living in total darkness depart billions of naira we generates daily from crude oil? The answer is that our criminal politicians care less if that country progresses or not; in as much as they are able to share our money among themselves at all levels of government. The late African icon- Nelson Mandela says, ” Nigerian politicians/leaders have no respect for their own people. They misuse public funds like is their personal money.” Honesty, service to the people, integrity, honor, love of the country, and accountability are not in their dictionary of our criminal politicians at all levels of government in Nigeria. Therefore, instead of us fighting ourselves senselessly based on tribal sentiments, we should come together as people and vote out all these criminal politicians from our various local government areas, states and finally send Badluck Jonathan back to Bayelsa state in 2015. Let us tell them that enough is enough.
