The immediate past Minister of Power, Chinedu Nebo says the improvement in power supply was achieved by former President, Goodluck Jonathan and not President Muhammadu Buhari’s body language.
Nebo stated that Jonathan did his best to achieve optimum electricity supply and to improve the power sector, but ‘some people did not want him to succeed’.
Nebo spoke in Ikole Ekiti on Saturday, where he was conferred with an honorary chieftaincy title of Atayese of Egbeoba kingdom by the Elekole, Oba Ajibade Adewumi Fasiku.
“Some said it was Buhari’s body language that brought the improvement, but I didn’t know what they meant. You can see that these saboteurs have stopped regular bursting of the gas pipes that powered the electricity since President Buhari came on board. Some people did not want Jonathan to succeed.
“Some of these people were doing this great disservice because they did not like President Jonathan. The regular supply is Jonathan’s labour. The present administration has not added any value to the sector and Nigerians must appreciate this.
“President Buhari will do wonders if he strengthens embedded generation and built more infrastructure for transmission of power.
“He should also change the threshold for licensing from one megawatt to five megawatts because the former has no incentive for investors and I believe Nigeria will leapfrog from 4,000 megawatts to something more appreciable, if this is done.”
