The gubernatorial candidate of New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP) in the last election in Ogun State, Olufemi Ajadi Oguntoyinbo, has disclosed that if 24 hours power supply is possible in Tanzania, it is also possible in Nigeria.

Ajadi, who contested in the last gubernatorial election held on Saturday, March 18, 2023 made this disclosure on Monday.

While revealing his experiences during the recent visit to Tanzania, Ajadi insisted that it is unfortunate that Tanzania can boost of 24 hours power supply while Nigerians are still battling with erratic supply of electricity on a daily basis.

The NNPP candidate while addressing the journalists, described as disheartening, the near comatose state of power, roads and other facilities in the country.

He said that what is happening to critical facilities in the country such as airports is an indictment on the leadership of the country.

He wondered why Nigeria with over 200 million people was still talking about 5,000 MW of power supply, when countries like Tanzania is already consolidating 20-hour power supply to its citizens.

He urged the federal government to ensure the upgrade of critical facilities across the country.

Ajadi said, “If 24 hours power supply is possible in Tanzania, it should be much more so in Nigeria, not to mention other associated infrastructure.

“I am using this opportunity, therefore, to appeal to our government to prioritise our infrastructure so that the much desired sustainable economic development will become a reality in Nigeria.”
