Federal government of Nigeria has been called upon to bring more ways that can successfully improve the power supply in this country in order to boosts economy at both rural and urban areas for better livelihood.
The call was made by a local metal worker, Malam Jafaru Yakasai in an interview with New Nigerian when our correspondent visited Santar Makera metal industry.
He stated that improving power supply would also enable Nigeria’s citizens to remain self reliant in every sector.
He added that, “From what is happening on the issue of power supply in this great nation, it is annoying because Nigeria should have since forgotten about the issue of power supply but all the past administrations failed to tackle the problem despite the huge amount that were spent on the restoration of constant electricity supply which shows that our past leaders failed in the sector.”
Malam Jafaru therefore, called on the TRCN to use it’s constitutional power to direct all electricity distribution companies to make electricity available across the country in order to provide more employment opportunities to Nigeria’s citizens like what is being seen in many developing countries.
