29 August 2014, Lagos – A Logistics expert and consultant to Ministry of Power, Mr. Emmanuel Nweke, has said the 248 containers of power equipment recently released to the Ministry at the Lagos ports will no doubt boost electricity supply across the country.
Disclosing this to newsmen in Lagos, Nweke lamented the delay of the power equipment in the port , adding that the release of the equipment to the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) will help boost power supply, which will in turn add value to the lives of Nigerians.
Nweke, who decried the epileptic power outage experienced in the country said Nigerians would have enjoyed better power supply if the past administration had ensured that the abandoned equipment which were expected to complete major power projects in the country was put into use
“It is so appalling that for over 11 years, very important equipment that would have added value to the lives of Nigerians were kept in the port for such a long time”. He opined that while the Federal Government was working hard to deliver the dividends of democracy, some unscrupulous Nigerians are trying to truncate these efforts.
It will be recalled that Minister of Power, Professor Chinedu Nebo, in Lagos commended the Apapa Customs Area Comptroller Mr. Charles Edike for facilitating the release of the containers. “Your support and assistance in delivering the equipment to the Transmission Company of Nigeria is commendable, your support will go a long way in boosting power supply
