The All Progressives Congress (APC) and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), which are in power, have come under fire from Peter Obi over the nation’s subpar electrical supply.
According to Anaedoonline.ng, Peter Obi stated that Nigerians should examine themselves in light of the failure of the APC and PDP to fulfill their campaign pledges during a weekend appearance on Central TV.
The former governor of Anambra State believes it is disgusting that despite having been in power for a combined total of 24 years, the two major political parties were unable to expand the nation’s electricity generation from 4,000 to 5,000 megawatts.
He said: “The simple thing for Nigerians to ask themselves is, we have been in this business for 24 years, are we on the right road? If you have been in a situation for 24 years, people have been promising and not delivering.
“Look at the two parties, have they delivered what they promised? In 24 years, Nigeria could not increase its power generation from 4,000 to 5,000 or 6,000. Ask yourself the question, are we going to continue with this? So, are you going to continue on the wrong road or turn and say ‘listen, we have to do the right thing?
“Every section of Nigeria wants to have uninterrupted electricity, don’t they? Every part of Nigeria wants to see good roads. Every part of Nigeria wants to see the prices of food come down. Is there anywhere you buy bread cheaper? If you do the right thing, people will follow you.”
