Increase in power supply not because of Buhari’s body language – Nebo

The immediate past Minister of Power, Prof. Chinedu Nebo has clarified that the improvement in power supply across the country under President Muhammadu Buhari came as a result of the effort put into the revamping of the sector by former President, Goodluck Jonathan.

This was as he attributed the inability of the Jonathan’s administration to turn around the power sector to cabals in the system, who he said resorted to destroying gas pipelines just to sabotage Jonathan’s strides in the critical sector.

Nebo, who made this assertion in Ikole Ekiti at the weekend while being conferred with the honorary title of Ateyese of Egbeoba kingdom by Elekole, Oba Ajibade Fasiku, however failed to name the cabals.

While insisting that it is wrong to attribute the improvement in power supply to Buhari’s body language and resolve to fight corruption, the former minister asserted that Jonathan’s heavy investment in the sector has started to yield dividends for Nigerians.

According to him, “Some said it was Buhari’s body language that brought the improvement, but I didn’t know what they meant.

You can see that these saboteurs have stopped regular bursting of the gas pipes that powered the electricity since President Buhari came on board.

“Some people did not want Jonathan to succeed. Some of these people were doing this great disservice because they did not like President Jonathan.

The regular supply is Jonathan’s labour. The present administration has not added any value to the sector and Nigerians must appreciate this.”

Oba Fasiku, who also conferred the honorary title of Yeye Atayese on the former minister’s wife, said the town was recognising them for their contributions to the establishment and nurturing of the Faculty of Engineering at the Ikole Campus of the Federal University, Oye Ekiti, of which Nebo was the Vice Chancellor before becoming a Minister.
