The Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Mr. Babatunde Fashola, SAN, has addressed Nigerians on the power crisis currently plaguing the nation.
Speaking on Channels Television, the immediate past governor of Lagos State explained that his children are also affected by the development as they sweat profusely and suffer heat rashes as well.
He said: “It’s a very hot season of the year. Even my children look at me and wonder. I see them sweating too, having heat rash and they look at me like what are you doing about this thing.
“Let me be very clear, this problem can be solved. It needs detailed and methodical approach.
“First work to do is to supply more gas because without gas, I am like a generator owner who can’t get fuel, so I can’t power my plants.
“There are errors of planning of yesterday but they are errors that can be corrected.”
Nigeria’s power generation recently collapsed to zero megawatt leading to a total black out that lasted for about three hours on Thursday, March 31, 2016.
The Federal Government had stated that there was no gas to generate 7,000 Megawatts to to power the country’s power plants and provide electricity in the country.
