Thomas Wilson Ikubese

The Presidential Aspirant of Alliance for New Nigeria Thomas-Wilson Ikubese, on Thursday, said one of the lists of priorities on his manifesto is to provide uninterrupted power supply in Nigeria within six months.

Ikubese, who was a guest on Channels Television Breakfast Programme, Sunrise Daily also took a swipe at previous administrations noting that any serious government can achieve this within six months.

“Any government that is serious within six months will provide uninterrupted power supply. That is one of my manifestos,” he said adding that this is possible if Nigerian Government decentralise power.”

“Each state will generate power and transmit to the end users without passing through the national grid, it is as simple as that.”

Ikubese stressed further the importance of decentralising power, according to him, six months is even too long to achieve uninterrupted power supply in Nigeria if some processes are duly followed.

“President Buhari was lampooning former President Obasanjo that he spent $16billion and where is the light. If President Buhari himself spend $100billion with what is on the ground, we won’t see light. We must decentralise power,” he said.

Giving a further breakdown of the process that must be followed, Ikubese highlighted some processes currently being followed but which he claimed would not solve the challenge of power supply in Nigeria.
