“Nigeria’s epileptic electricity supply remains a matter of deep concern. Although South Africa, the second biggest economy on the continent has a population of over 60 million, and generates over 50,000 megawatts.

“Nigeria, the African giant with over 200 million people, generates a paltry 4000 megawatts, which is less than 10% of South Africa’s without declaring a power crisis or emergency.

“Nigerians should take a cue from global governance best practices; grasp what people-oriented leadership is all about and rise up for effective change,” he tweeted.

In another report, Peter Obi who is the former Governor of Anambra State and the presidential candidate for the Labour Party has openly condemned the killing of some soldiers by terrorists in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.

Some gunmen suspected to be members of the Boko Haram insurgents had on Monday, attacked the Presidential Guards Brigade in Abuja, killing at least two soldiers.

Reacting, Obi in a tweet on his verified Twitter handle on Thursday, sent his condolences to the families of the deceased. He had also tasked President Muhammadu Buhari’s government to take urgent actions in addressing the security crisis rocking the nation.

He wrote, “I deeply console the families and loved ones of our soldiers killed by terrorists. It’s becoming a regular duty to send such condolences of avoidable deaths.

“So sad! Our government should please do whatever is necessary to stop these daily flows of tears…PO”
