If Elected, I‘ll Declare war on Power Sector - Peter Obi

Starrys Obazei/January 16, 2023.

Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, has said he will declare war on the power sector if elected president in the forthcoming general elections.

Obi said this, Monday, while speaking at the Chatham House in the United Kingdom.

“You have heard them say we don’t have structure, that structure is the one that has dismantled Nigeria. We will destroy that structure of criminality, I assure you of it.8.9M

“We’re going to turn around the power sector. Nigeria today generates 5 – 6,000 megawatts for 200 million people and South Africa, the second biggest in terms of the economy on the continent, 60 million people, generates over 40,000 megawatts, yet, they have declared an emergency in the power sector.

“I have said that anyone can generate up to 100,000 megawatts with our license.

“If a country with a 60 million population generating over 40,000MW is declaring an emergency on power, what do you think somebody with two million people generating 5,000 to 6,000MW will do? War!

“I am going to declare war on power and I will solve it. Anybody who stands in the way, so be it,” Obi said.
