I’ll end power failure in four years – Jonathan

President Goodluck Jonathan yesterday said his administration remains committed to the attainment of uninterrupted power supply in Nigeria before the end of its tenure in 2015.

Jonathan gave this assurance during an audience with members of the Board of the Niger Delta Power Holding Company led by Vice President Namadi Sambo.

The President maintained that the Federal Government was mindful of the importance of steady power supply for national development, and would therefore do everything possible to ensure stable power supply.

President Jonathan said: “We all know the importance of power. We look forward to a time when Nigerians can enjoy uninterrupted power supply from the beginning to the end of a year and we are working hard to ensure that, that objective is attained within the life-span of this administration”.

Jonathan urged members of the board and management of the Niger Delta Power Holding Company to ensure that the company, which was established to oversee the implementation of National Integrated Power Projects, NIPP, funded by the three-tiers of government, contributes very effectively to meeting the country’s power supply needs.

Vice President Sambo who chairs the board of the company assured President Jonathan that it will deliver all gas-fired NIPP power generating stations, as well as associated transmission projects on schedule to ensure that the Jonathan administration’s promise of steady power supply is fulfilled.
Sambo said: “We will work relentlessly to fulfill our mandate on time,” while thanking President Jonathan for receiving members of the board. The Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Governors of Benue, Delta and Ekiti states, as well as the Ministers of Power, Petroleum, and Justice were present at the meeting
