Nigeria Cant Go Forward With No Light Or Poor Electricity by cooltola(m): 12:20am On Nov 30, 2023
Once this issue is fix, then Nigeria can move forward. I still wonder why those in power are not trying to fix this problem instead they are doing elephant project like building school and so forth.
Till then , expect things to worsen.

Even you yourself, deep down you know that Tinubu ls not like Buhari.

Tinubu is not used to giving excuses for non-performance.

He is not about to start now in his old age.

the companies in Japan, China and uk making most of our generators our elite/ politicians have shares in them or get settled . Atiku is rumoured to own Mikano.

Also with constant electricity diesel and petrol consumption will reduce. Guess who are in charge of importing and logistics of those products. Politicians and elite.
Why should the government fix the issue if they are benefiting from it

''1. Power: Tinubu’s government, in 2000, contracted AES to build an IPP that will generate 270MW of electricity to Lagos residents in order to exit the irrational power supply being provided by the FG. The 270MW is now part of our national grid. It is the first of it’s Kind. Tinubu electrification project covered over 100 communities. In his first term, 53 rural communities were targeted. The projects were completed in Egan, Atewolere, Ifesowapo, Aboru, Agbado Ayetoro, Akorede, Isheri Ikosi, Orile Aguntan, Rofo, Borokini, Omologbede, Araromi, Oke Agbo, Erekusu, Logberu, Okegelu and Ebute, Lekki. Others were Origanringan, Onigbolakowe, Oke odo Elemoro, Ipaja Isale odo, Agenuba, Ajelogo, Mutaku, Egansando, Ayanfe, topo and Ikola Agbenaje.

2. Decentralization: In order to bring governance closer to the people of Lagos state, Asiwaju created extra 36 LCDAs which led to the disagreement between Lagos and the OBJ led FG. They are still working till date. Nigeria needs someone who believes in this!
First of it’s kind

3. Economy: With an IGR of just over 600million naira when he took over, different initiatives which included the reorganization of the LIRS led to an unprecedented IGR of over 7billion monthly after 8 years, the sustainability of which has brought same to 57bn in 2022.

4. Health: Decentralization of the Health Management Board led to the creation of LASAMBUS, an ambulance management scheme, Hospital Services Commission and Lagos State Health Facility Monitoring and Accreditation Agency. In addition, policies such as “Roll Back Malaria”, “Jigi Bola, Free Health Policy for children below 16 year and adults above 65 years are verifiable ones that stood him out then. The First of its Kind.

5. Infrastructure: Roads, Railway Roadmaps, Port Roadmaps, Housing Roadmaps. Hospital Roadmaps.

https://thenationonlineng.net/tinubu-the-power-of-lagos-blueprint/amp/

6. Investment: Lekki Free Trade Zone opened Lagos to investors and now several top companies/bodies have their headquarters there including the biggest consulate office of the USA. Lekki infrastructure company, Eko Atlantic.

7. Housing: Decentralization of the ministry of works and housing gave birth to the conversion of the housing department to a full fledge ministry which was charged with providing 500 units of houses yearly. This single move led to making the Lekki corridor the fastest growing real estate investment haven in Nigeria. Housing sector was opened to the private investors and Lagos became the highest destination for real estate investors in Nigeria.

8. EDUCATION: Payment of WAEC fee for students from all walks of life so far you live in Lagos. Several schools were built. The One-Day governor program started with the spelling bee competition.
First of its kind

9. SECURITY: The closest thing to state policing started in Nigeria under Tinubu, with RRS in 1999. The prisons reformation in order to curb activities of criminals, led to conversion of Ita Oko Prisoners Camp to a Youth Skill Acquisition Centre. Infact RRS is now the most performing police force in Nigeria. To make things work, he created the Lagos security trust fund where private sector come together to invest in Lagos security in conjunction with the government.''

Constant electricity is absolutely not needed for development... Instead it's a luxury that comes with development

Common sense should tell you that the generators Nigerians are using is because of lack of adequate power supply.

Secondly, cost of business/production has a negative impact on a business, especially when one spends huge resources to get fuel for the generators.

Post harvest preservation.

For example, thousands of tonnes of fruits and veggies like mangoes, avocadoes, pears, bananas, cabbage, pepper, lettuce etc that go to waste daily with over all market value running into billions of naira that could have been preserved in lower temperature using 24hrs electricity, I guess that is in no way affecting Nigeria's food security.
