Kaduna legislator and chairman of the senate committee on domestic debt and loans, Shehu Sani has spoken up regarding the lack of electricity being experienced across the country.

According to a report by Daily Post, Sani said there was no excuse for the kind of hardship Nigerians were facing, describing the lack of power supply as unacceptable and embarrassing.

Speaking further, Senator Sani called on President Muhammadu Buhari to review his appointments, advising him not only to appoint an electrical engineer, but one who has the knowledge of the industry.

His words: “We are in a state of paralysis, and there is urgent need to appoint a reputable electrical engineer to manage the affairs of power, independent of other responsibilities.

“Distribution Companies (DISCOs) were now distributing darkness despite increment in electricity tariff; private power investors have failed the nation by moving manageable power epilepsy to a complete paralysis.”

Sani went on to beseech the President to review the defunct Power Holdings Company of Nigeria assets, adding that privatisation of power regime had not yielded positive dividends in the life of the average Nigerian.
