The Presidential spokesperson, Femi Adesina, says that President Muhammadu Buhari is determined to improve the country’s electricity supply before leaving office in 2023.
Adesina, stated this on Tuesday when he featured on Channels TV, speaking during the interview, he said the president’s speech will address global issues as they affect Nigeria.
According to him, “Nigerians can’t say there has been no improvement in the supply of electricity since the inception of this administration, I just told you that some transformers came into the country under the siemens deal recently. That doesn’t tantamount to saying there is no movement, there is some movement and it will translate to better power for the country.
“Nobody would deny that Nigeria has a power problem, particularly with electricity. It has been there with different administrations; they battled the issue and failed. But this administration has made progress and will still progress on power supply.
“In some parts of the country, Nigerians are experiencing better electricity supply and it will get better.
“We have an agreement with siemens which is making progress now, it was slow at some point but for some weeks, we have seen transportation of different types of transformers and electrical equipment coming into the country. I can assure you there is progress.
“President Buhari is determined that before he leaves office in 2023, there will be significant progress in delivering electricity and power to Nigerians and whatever it takes to do it, he would do,” Adesina said.
