President Buhari will give Nigeria 24-hour power supply if re-elected – Amaechi assures Nigerians

The Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi has assured Nigerians of 24-hour power supply if President Buhari is re-elected in 2019.

Amaechi gave the assurance while addressing journalists in Abuja, on Tuesday.

The Minister also defended the planned establishment of Transportation University in Daura, Katsina state.

Amaechi said there was nothing special about sitting the university in President Muhammadu Buhari’s hometown since “Daura is also part of Nigeria”.

He said, “The president did not even know I will choose Daura. The reason Daura is part of Nigeria. If we site it in Sokoto, it is still part of Nigeria. So why is the emphasis on Daura?.

“If I had chosen Port Harcourt, Enugu, that is the same way I would have chosen Daura. The people of Daura should not be deprived of these things because the president is from there.

The former governor said the Buhari administration has “done so much” in the area of infrastructure and in fighting corruption.

“There is also an improvement in power. We have from 3000megawatt to 7000 but we are distributing 5000 because some of the Infrastructures are not in good state but we are slowly fixing them.

“The expectation is that it should be 24 hours power supply but there will still be a gap but if you give us a second term, that gap will be closed,” he said.
