DEAL or NO DEAL: Vote out PDP and get Electricity – Gov Fashola

Governor Babatunde Fashola of Lagos State on
Friday said uninterrupted power supply could be
achieved in the country.He explained that the only
way to achieve the feat was for Nigerians to vote out
the ruling Peoples Democratic Party from power in
the 2015 general elections.Fashola, who said this
at an event to mark his administration’s 2,600 in
office in Ikeja, said power crisis in the country was
caused by lack of ideas and insincerity of purpose on
the part of the Federal Government.He said,” Yes, it
is possible to generate electricity and to make sure
that everybody in this country has electricity , I agree
with you it is simple what we have done in Lagos
within the areas where we are constrained showed
that it can be done . But you know what the only way
that you and I will have electricity in this country
will be to vote out the PDP.”“In 16 years hundreds of
billions of naira, trillions of naira have been spent
and we cannot switch on electricity and in seven
years we have created four plants , it showed that
something is missing. So unless you vote for All
Progressive Congress, an inefficient government, it
is going to be difficult to have electricity.“They
started from vision 2020-20 and I told you then that
they were having nightmare that there was no
vision.They moved to seven point agenda and now
they are transforming.” Let me also say that in the
last seven years, ask how many new power plants
the Federal Government has commissioned because
sometimes the power that is coming to Lagos at
most is 1000 mega watts.”Fashola said his
administration in the last 100 days gave priority
attention to provision of homes for Lagosians
through the Lagos Home ownership Mortgage
Scheme.He explained that the state government in a
bid to reduce the housing deficit in the state has
continued to give out 200 housing units every month
to subscribers to the scheme, adding that the state
government intensified efforts to ensure that those
in the informal sector benefit from the scheme.In the
area of infrastructural development , he said the
state government completed so many road projects
across the state within the period , noting that 205
roads projects were at various stages of construction
in the state.
