Port Harcourt — The Presidential Candidate of Labour Party, Mr Peter Obi, has said that if elected in 2023, he will scale up power generation and liberalised transmission infrastructure in the country, for Nigerians to enjoy stable power supply.
Obi explained that effective power generation, transmission and distribution remain a national security issue.
Reacting to the incessant cases of national grid collapse in the country, Obi descibed the menace as very disturbing, saying that it was a reminder of the long rescue and recovery journey ahead.
“This also places power in the front burner of campaign and policy
“As part of the Obi-Datti policy plan, we have put together a strategic plan to progressively scale up power generation, and the liberalisation of the transmission infrastructure in the country, to ensure that Nigerians enjoy adequate and stable power supply from 2023 onwards.
” Power is critical to the development and sustainability of all sectors of the national economy.
“For us, power remains a top priority. Under my watch, national grid collapse will become a matter of history and a reference point for erstwhile administrations.”
