Nigerians will enjoy uninterrupted power supply under my leadership, says Tinubu
|APC National Leader, Bola Tinubu|
The national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, has said that the biggest economic challenge faced by Nigeria is electricity.
The former governor also described epileptic power supply as the single greatest impediment to Nigeria’s economic development, promising that under his leadership the epileptic power supply will end.
He said that the lack of power inflates costs, undercuts productivity, causing havoc to overall economic activity and job creation.
The Guardian reports that Tinubu promised to revive Nigeria’s economy through his seven-point agenda.
He said: “Deficit spending in our own currency to advance this mission is neither a luxury nor a mistake. It is a fulcrum of balanced and shared prosperity. We must overcome the economic, political and bureaucratic bottlenecks preventing us from achieving reliable electrical power.”
Further making the seven-point proposal of reviving Nigeria’s economy, the former governor of Lagos state noted that Nigeria has to reduce its over-dependence on petro-dollars.
Admitting that this desire is to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari by improving the nation’s economy, the APC’s national leader assured that all Nigerians including the unborn generations will benefit from his proposed agenda.
He said: “Our economic situation is literally and figuratively in the dark. The hurdles we face are not technical in nature.
“We must convince those political and economic factors currently impeding our quest for reliable power to step aside so that we may obtain this critical ingredient to economic vitality.”
