The Lagos state Governor Babatunde Fashola is talking though as he asked electorates on Friday to vote for his party, the All Progressives Congress, APC, if they must have uninterrupted power supply could be achieved in the country.
He urged the people to vote out the ruling Peoples Democratic Party from power in the 2015 general elections. The governor made the remarks at an event to mark his administration’s 2,600 in office in Ikeja. And here’s a transcript of what the governor said.
” Yes, it is possible to generate electricity and to make sure that everybody in this country has electricity , I agree with you it is simple what we have done in Lagos within the areas where we are constrained showed that it can be done . But you know what the only way that you and I will have electricity in this country will be to vote out the PDP.”
“In 16 years hundreds of billions of naira, trillions of naira have been spent and we cannot switch on electricity and in seven years we have created four plants , it showed that something is missing. So unless you vote for All Progressive Congress, an inefficient government, it is going to be difficult to have electricity.
“They started from vision 2020-20 and I told you then that they were having nightmare that there was no vision.
They moved to seven point agenda and now they are transforming.
” Let me also say that in the last seven years, ask how many new power plants the Federal Government has commissioned because sometimes the power that is coming to Lagos at most is 1000 mega watts.”
