EDITOR’s NOTE: The Improvement in Power Supply

improvement-in-power-supply

This week, reports of NOiPolls say that 61 percent of adult Nigerians, in august 2014 held the opinion that President goodluck Jonathan’s administrtation has improved power supply to households.

As experience has taught us, many politicians and political office holders become unusually concerned with what the public thinks about them as another year of general elections draw nearer. Most politicians, we know, sponsor opinion surveys that measure how the pubilc perceive them and their services to the people. Some desperate ones go as far as doctoring the reports in order to present themselves in  glowing light.

Sounds a bit radical, doesn’t it? I just think we shouldn’t get carried away with the NOiPolls reported improvements in power supply to households as perceived by adult Nigerians. We shouldn’t start jumping yet. Let’s think and find out why the other 39 percent Nigerians think there isn’t much improvements in the power sector yet. These other 39 percent could have  had cogent points to justify their views.

The Igbos of the South-East hold heavy stakes in both the commercial and the industrial sectors of our economy, and can feel the pains associated with the epilepsy in power supply more than other ethnicities in Nigeria, because of the central role electricity plays in their daily enterprise. Therefore, any inquiry into the state of the power sector will interest an Igbo man.

Also,  expenditure made to improve power supply to households and businesses in the South-East will please the hearts of Igbo people. So for politicians and political office holders seeking support from the South-East in 2015, improving public opinion concerning power supply to households and busineses in Igbo land is a must.

I don’t know how you feel about that; but for me, it really isn’t difficult to develop the power sector and improve power supply to the South-Easterners. Once there is a will; there’s a way. Money, materials, manpower, and strong political will to improve the welfare of the people are all that is needed to achieve 99.9 percent uptime in power supply to igbo land.

I hope to see Nigerians enjoy at least one year uninterruped power supply soon.

God Bless!!!
