Up NEPA: Help on the way, FG tells Nigerians

According to vanguardngr, The federal government has said “Nigerians should take heart, help is on the way

Following the significant decline in power supply witnessed across the country in the last couple of days and the untold hardship it has brought upon Nigerians.

Speaking at the Worldstage National Electricity Power Conference, in Lagos, Minister of Power, Professor Chinedu Nebo, who was represented by his Special Adviser on Investment, Finance and Human Resources, Mr. Olajuwon Olaleye, said the Federal Government is aware that the power sector is the hub of development, and it is ensuring that all hands are on deck to bring progress to the sector.

Stating that the Federal Government is aware of the challenges confronting the sector and is working assiduously to address the problems.

This is coming on the heels of a worsening power situation, with power supply dropping to as low as 2,000 mega watts in the last couple of days. This has led to rationing of electricity as a number of households in the country are grappling with about six hours of electricity daily.

My concern is, when will Nigerians start seeing or feeling the result of this assiduous work? Nigerians have been taking heart since 19-IWasBorn and are still taking heart on the power issue. We don’t need anyone reminding us to take heart, all we want to see is results.

Now we are being told they are in the second stream of the shadow trading phase, whatever that means. The market woman who depends on power to freeze her goods doesn’t understand this grammar. We need actions. And we are hoping to have a generation where we would have to explain what the term “UP NEPA” means. We probably would be dead by then
