Nigerians will be happy to celebrate Christmas without need for generators – Jonathan

On Wednesday, President Goodluck Jonathan inaugurated the newly reconstituted Presidential Action Committee on Power and Presidential Task Force on Power.

During the ceremony, the president directed the Minister of State for Power, Mr Darius Ishaku, to take charge of the power ministry in the interim. He also appointed, Mr Reynolds Dagogo-Jack of National Integrated Power Project, NIPP, as the Chairman of the reconstituted Presidential Task Force on Power.

The president then promised that he would forward names of replacements for ministers of defence and power to the senate for approval, immediately the Senate resumed from recess on September 22. According to him, “Definitely immediately the National Assembly comes back, especially the Senate, we will clear the two vacancies that we have. They will get cleared and we will place people accordingly so that the Ministry of Power will come up.

“But, in the interim, the Minister of State Power is holding on to that. But whether the Minister of Power comes or not, we want to reconstitute the two teams because Nigerians will not be happy if we relapse and I believe that as we progress from now till December if Nigerians can go home in December and do their parties without generators and can drive to their States without gutters (potholes) on our roads stopping them, I think the rating of government will improve. So we must work hard to get to this level.”
