Buhari Inherited Reckless Privatization Of Power Sector From Jonathan But Has Made It Better – Garba Shehu

The Senior Special Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on media and publicity, Garba Shehu has declared that his principal has performed incredibly in making the nation’s power sector better.

He stated that more could have been done about power generation in Nigeria but the “reckless privatization” of the sector which it inherited from the government of former President Goodluck Jonathan has hampered it and stakeholders from executing some of their good intentions.

He also argued that the privatization of the power sector in 2013 by the previous administration was done for political reasons and not in the best interest of Nigerians.

Shehu who spoke on Friday during an interview with Channels TV Sunrise Daily, however, said despite the obvious challenges, the Buhari administration has increased power generation to about 13,000 megawatts from the 2,500 it inherited.

He said not only the generation but also the distribution has improved under the Buhari government and Nigerians can boast of an improved power supply despite “situations on ground.”

“The situation on ground constrained the government and the party from delivering as much more than what we have. As we speak today we have doubled power availability in the country,” he said.
