Senate President David Mark has decried the poor power supply in the country declaring that the situation has worsened in recent times.
According to Mark “I have not seen any change in power supply, if anything the situation is getting worse. It is very painful and we agonise over it all the time. The whole dream about vision 2020 will just remain a dream without the power situation improving.”
Mark asked officials in the sector to adopt radical means of solving the situation saying “the situation of power goes beyond statistics on the pages of paper. If sacking people will be the solution lets sack them and get results.
“It is not all about saying that you have generated so much megawatt. I think we should even stop saying that we are generating 3,000 megawatts because that is supposed to be for a small town.”
While inaugurating the committee on National Security and Intelligence, Mark declared that the Boko Haram threat is just a passing phase and will soon be contained.
He charged security agencies to bring the situation under control as it can scare off investors from the country.
Mark also inaugurated the committees on National Planning, Nigerian Navy, Niger Delta and Police Affairs. (Daily Trust)
