Obi Queries FG Over Inability To Improve Power Transmission, Distribution

\"Enough

According to Labour Party presidential candidate Peter Obi, Nigerians should be prepared to remove both the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) from power in the general elections of 2023 because both parties have failed to fulfill their campaign pledges.

Speaking about the country’s shortage of electricity, Obi said it is disgusting that while holding office for a combined 24 years, the APC and PDP were unable to increase Nigeria’s power generation from 4,000 to 5,000 MW.

The simple thing for Nigerians to ask themselves is, we have been in this business for 24 years, are we on the right road? If you have been in a situation for 24 years, people have been promising and not delivering.

Look at the two parties, have they delivered what they promised? In 24 years, Nigeria could not increase its power generation from 4,000 to 5,000 or 6,000. Ask yourself the question, are we going to continue with this? So, are you going to continue on the wrong road or turn and say ‘listen, we have to do the right thing.’

Obi asserted that he is uniquely qualified to lead Nigeria out of the current predicament that the two parties have placed it in as a result of poor administration given his eight years of experience as governor of Anambra state.

Every section of Nigeria wants to have uninterrupted electricity, don’t they? Every part of Nigeria wants to see good roads. Every part of Nigeria wants to see the prices of food come down. Is there anywhere you buy bread cheaper? If you do the right thing, people will follow you.

The level of divisiveness is because you have not come to bring people together. I will engage everybody constructively. I will sit down and discuss with every group. We will dialogue with them; we will bring everybody together in love. There are so many things you can solve by dialoguing and through discussion.
