Contrary to popular belief, former Minister of Power, Professor Chinedu Nebo, has credited the improved power supply in the country to the efforts of former president, Goodluck Jonathan.
According to The Nation, Nebo who spoke in Ikole Ekiti on Saturday, October 10, where he was conferred with an honorary chieftaincy title argued that it would be wrong for Nigerians to attribute the improvement in power supply to President Muhammadu Buhari’s body language and war against corruption.
The former minister, who served as the pioneer vice chancellor of the Federal University, Oye Ekiti (FUOYE) before his appointment said the former president did his best to transform the power sector, but was frustrated by saboteurs.
Nebo said: “Some said it was Buhari’s body language that brought the improvement, but I didn’t know what they meant. You can see that these saboteurs have stopped regular bursting of the gas pipes that powered the electricity since President Buhari came on board.
“Some of these people were doing this great disservice because they did not like President Jonathan. The regular supply is Jonathan’s labour. The present administration has not added any value to the sector and Nigerians must appreciate this.”
