Buhari Passes Failure Verdict On His Govt’s Performance In Power Sector

Nigerian President, Muhammadu Buhari has passed a verdict of “not good enough” to his government’s performance in the power sector of the nation in the last four years of his administration.

The President added that this called for more efforts by Electricity Distribution Companies to provide the needed resources and technical expertise.

Speaking on Wednesday in Abuja when the Oba of Benin, Omo N’Oba N’ Edo Ewuare II, led members of the Edo State Council of Traditional Rulers and chiefs on a visit to the President at the Presidential Villa, Buhari stated that the Federal Government would play its own part by improving the transmission of electricity.

The Oba, who sought the President’s intervention on the power supply situation in Edo State, had described it as a “pathetic situation.”

But Buhari appealed to Nigerians for calm, while urging them to be patient with the Discos to deliver on their mandate.

A statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr Femi Adesina, quoted the President as saying that though his administration had put in its best to improve power in the past years, especially improvement in gas supplies, the performance was not good enough.

“We are building infrastructure. We are doing our best, but, obviously, our best is not good enough yet”, the Presidency quoted Buhari as saying.
