Declare state of emergency in the power sector – CPC

Says nation’s electricity supply problem has negatively affected all the sectors of the economy

One of the leaders of the Congress for Progressive Change (CPC), Dennis Aghanya, has called on the Federal Government to declare a state of emergency in the power sector.

Speaking on Friday, Aghanya said it had become necessary because the nation’s electricity supply problem had negatively affected all the sectors of the economy.

According to him, the declaration would place additional responsibility on the government to expedite action in tackling the situation “with the urgency it demands”.

“Power failure has became a source of concern to all because virtually every sector of the economy is being affected by power outage,” he said.

“They should set up a task force that will ensure the workability of providing uninterrupted electricity supply in Nigeria. Power contributes to 90 percent of the nation’s economic activities.”

He argued that without steady electricity supply, the dream of Nigeria being among the 20 most developed economies of the world by the year 2020 would continue to be a mirage.

According to him, electricity was the foundation of every developed economy of the world and Nigeria should not be left behind.
