Regular Power Supply; Can We Wait Till 2008?

MR PRESIDENT HAS DONE WHAT NO OTHER LEADER IN NIGERIA HAS EVER DONE IN THE PAST, THAT IS, TELLING US THE TRUTH, PLAIN AND Unclad.

ACCORDING TO NEWS REPORT (SINCE THERE WAS NO POWER SUPPLY TO WATCH IT LIVE) NIGERIANS WERE INFORMED THROUGH MAY 27TH PRESIDENTIAL MEDIA CHAT THAT THE SOLUTION TO ERRATIC POWER SUPPLY WILL EMERGE IN 2011 AND NOT 2008.

SO I ASK, DO WE CONTINUE TO MAINTAIN THE STATUS QUO TILL 2011?

Let's be honest with our self do you realisticly think this power problem can be solved by this present govt? I don't think so looking at historical records both home and abroad clearly confirms people who generally solve mass problems are solely dedicated to cause and I doubt our present so called ignoramus leaders have that kind of zeal in nigeria we need people who are self aware know the in and out of runing nja ,people passionate most importanly people who are intrested in setting standards or leaving a good legacy until then nigeria has no clue or moving to get better.

What I propose

1 please educate or skill up your self. Thereby generating more income to buy the following

Fuel 4 your gen,

Invest in alternative forms of generation

Supply your own water

If possible build your roads and all other infrastructure as necessary

2. Move out abroad or neigbouring countries eg ghana, togo ( togo have light constantly)

Honsetly speaking we are not able to solve this power problem by the present adminstration in five years. So prepare for total darkness as the present generation level is even decreasing

So forget vision2020

As far as I am concern, President Yar A'dull is CLUELESS and maybe to be fair to him he doesn't want the job in the first place since he was 'suddenly put in place' by his late brother Sheu Yar Adua's friend OBJ.

Alternatively it may be that his health is not strong enough for the job, or he is not fit mentally and intellectually to do the job.

I have said it before that this guy may be worse than Sheu Shagari who has Umar Dikko as the country driver while he Shagari was the Passenger during the 2nd Republic.

You may have heard about 7 point agenda and 2020 vision. I have written about the 2020 vision thing that is no more than 20naira 20 naira police vision

I want you to print this and keep it somewhere come 2011 during the time yar A'dull will be due for re-election that nothing will have been done.

This government is backward looking. Once you start to appoint someone like Baba gana Kinigigbe as your right hand man such govt is doom.

OBJ spent 8 years no power. Yar A'dull has spent 1 year no power. PDP NO POWWER shame on you.

Yar A'dull even promised emergency within 100days of his govt a year ago. Where is honesty, so even if he tells me that our power will be solved in 2025 I will never believe him.

What is it that is so difficult about electricity as some people on this website  even suggest.

If you can put petrol in your generator and get power, it is no different. The system need to be assembled from where it may have been purchased from and connect to either Gas or coal or it maybe windmill or Nuclear or even hydro.

Every government in Nigeria up to date lack the political willpower to do anything transformational especially power.

And if I may add there are very few enduring legacy we have seen from any previous administration.

Our Road networks is road to hell. I just think we don't have any leader only

commitee of Chaos Plc running our country.

I may be wrong.

I think the idea of Privatizing power supply sector in Nigeria was dissolved because of the dregs from previous admin that are still lingering around in Nigeria today.

As much as I was pulling for privatization, I think dissolving it for now is the right move.

TRULY THERE WAS A PLAN TO PRIVITIZE AND I QUITE AGREE WITH YOU THAT TURNING AROUND AT THIS TIME STILL REMAIN A PRESIDENTIAL BLUNDER, EVEN THOUGH THERE MIGHT HAVE BEEN SOME 'WURUWURU' IN THE PRIVATIZATION PROCESS LIKE THE IN THE SALE OF EGBIN THERMAL STATION.

WHAT GOVT OUGHT TO HAVE DONE IS TO REVIEW AND STILL GO AHEAD WITH THE PRIVITIZATION PROGRAM. BUT THAT NOTWITHSTANDING, I BELIEVE WE HAVE COME TO A POINT WHERE WE REALY NEED TO TAKE DECISIVE STEPS AND BE MORE TRANSPARENT WITH GOVT POLICY.

PRIVITIZATION IS GOOD, BUT EVEN IN THE COMMUNICATION SECTOR THE SUCCESS RECORDED SO FAR WERE MADE BY NEW ENTRANTS NOT THE BUYERS OF GOVT ENTITIES LIKE NITEL

No Blueprint for solving the power problem?? After a whole year in office and 8 years prior with Obasanjo’s own ideas already in the works, we should accept we have no blueprint for solving the power problem?? I disagree. We had a plan to privatize. Yaradua scrapped that plan and now has his own plan. Is that not what he is in essence saying??

There is a solution. I would have preferred he used all that time to study the solution already in the works from the previous administration and continued with the good while reorganizing to come up with better. However, since he chooses to go a different path, I hope he has a solution or his so called honesty is of no use to me.

Yes, we can wait!

First step: We must identify an effective tool to vigorously fight corruption in Nigeria

Second step: We must empower our leadership skill and enlighten our mentality as Nigerians.

If steps 1 and 2 are successfully accomplished, then we could focus all our attention on improving infrastructure, power supply or water supply.

But we must keep in mind that without a clear accomplishment of steps1 and 2, we would continue to fool ourselves for many years to come and our people will forever live in the darkness.

And infact, these are the steps OBJ failed to follow during his era and the main reason why his leadership took us back 15 years.

Simultaneously we must embrace honesty and have patience .

Therefore, I admire the integrity, sincerity and intelligence of our president, President Yar'Adua.

A long term favorable out-come requires time, sacrifice and endurance; it makes absolutely no sense to rush into another unpredictable situation as we've done in the past; let's give time a chance to tell.

I think we are on the right track.

But you know I really love the sincerity of the president. for him to have admitted to not really knowing the problem cum solution to warrant a state of emergency as earlier promised, I believe take a lot of guts. And i believe it is high time we come to accept the government in Nigeria has no blueprint for solving the power problem.

This is really no PHCN problem, but a clear lack of proper power policy and discipline that has brought us this far. but I strongly believe there there must be a solution, if not solutions. we can not afford to wait till 2011

We can all assume that this is not part of yar Adua’s plan at the moment. I believe we need to direct the states and regions to push for faster implementation of the plans he currently has. I doubt the man has any plans to change from the federal model to state controlled models.

The bold thing to do is to encourage all states or regions to cater to ther own power needs. You never know, it might be good for our democracy, hence if a state wants to take power generation seriously then they can and people in states without power can then begin to ask their leaders why other states have power and they don't.
