The Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, says there has been a massive development in the power sector under the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration.
Naija News reports that the tripartite minister said that well-meaning Nigerians can attest to the fact that power supply has improved compared to what it was before the Buhari-led administration came into power in 2015.
Fashola stated this at a media parley in his Abuja office yesterday on Monday, April 29th.
The Minister said he was very convinced that he has fulfilled his promise of incremental power, better journey experience on the roads, affordable housing, as well as economic opportunities for Nigerians.
“In the power sector, well-meaning Nigerians acknowledge our efforts by saying clearly that their power supply experience has improved compared to 2015, and we acknowledge that the work has not finished. The task going forward is to solve the outstanding issues of estimated billing, supply of meters, add more power and make the supply steady which I stated will be our medium-term goal.” he said.
Naija News recalls that Senator Shehu Sani (PRP-Kaduna Central) has reacted to claims by the Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, that some states in Nigeria experience constant power supply.
Fashola, a former Lagos State governor, made the claim in an interview with Channels Television on Wednesday.
The Minister of Power, Works and Housing, also said that his office has done tremendously well in the areas of road construction and housing.
