Thomas-Wilson Ikubese says he’ll provide Nigerians with uninterrupted power supply if elected into office in 2019.
Ikubese is a presidential aspirant on the platform of the Alliance for a New Nigeria (ANN).
“Any government that is serious within six months will provide uninterrupted power supply,” Ikubese declared on ChannelsTv flagship breakfast programme, Sunrise Daily, on Thursday, June 14, 2018.
“That is one of my manifestos,” he said adding that this is possible if Nigerian Government decentralise power.
“President Buhari was lampooning former President Obasanjo that he spent $16billion and where is the light. If President Buhari himself spend $100billion with what is on the ground, we won’t see light. We must decentralise power,” he said.
Ikubese highlighted some processes currently being followed but which he claimed would not solve the challenge of power supply in Nigeria.
“We have a provision that if you generate more than 10megawatts you must pass it into the national grid. We must take that off.
“Generate where you are, transmit irrespective of the megawatts that you generate. Six months is too long.”
