FG Working on Fixing Power Sector Issues with Long Term Solutions – Adelabu

The federal government has said it is working on fixing the main issues in the power sector to come up with a long-term solution.

Power Minister Adebayo Adelabu made this statement while speaking with the press following a gathering with various All Progressives Congress (APC) members at the Oyo State party headquarters in Oke-Ado, Ibadan.

He said: “I want to use this opportunity to reassure Nigerians that the government of President Bola Tinubu is ready and determined to change the face of things in the power sector, to change the game in the power sector. This is why we are addressing the root cause of the power sector problems.

“We are addressing all the problems associated with all the segments of the power sector value chain – from gas supply to generation, to transmission, to distribution and to the customers themselves. There are a lot of things that we are doing that Nigerians will soon start seeing.

“Yes, there are pockets of improvements here and there, but that is not where we are going. We are still going to Eldorado whereby every Nigerian will be able to enjoy adequate, stable, functional and reliable power supply.”

“But let me tell you that it is a journey and not a destination. We will start seeing this improvement as we are seeing now to improve. This is because when you are repairing, you will still suffer some damages, you will still suffer some pains.

“When they were repairing the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway for 10 years, people were having traffic jam and getting held up in serious traffic until they finished the road.

“So, while we are repairing, people must help us to bear the little pains that will come with it. But at the end of the day, we will make gains. For you to make an omelet, you must break eggs. This is the period of breaking the eggs. Very soon, we will start eating our omelet.

“I am determined to solve the problems in the power sector and Nigerians will start singing our good songs very soon,”
