President Goodluck Jonathan on Friday said he had fulfilled his campaign promise to Nigerians that he would make the power sector his administration’s priority.
Jonathan stated this during the inauguration of the Olorunsogo II Power Station in Ogun State.
The power plant is a 750MW Nigerian Integrated Power Project.
“I have lived up to my campaign pledge to make the power sector a priority,” Jonathan said.
He said although it was capital intensive to make a difference in the power sector, his administration had been addressing it headlong.
The President said the short interface between public ownership of power sector to private sector would soon be over.
According to him, Nigerians will begin to take power for granted in the next two years.
He said he was confident that Nigeria is moving in the right direction under his watch.
Jonathan described the power plant as the second largest NIPP power station in the country.
The President, however, urged Nigerians to support the Federal Government in its desire to improve electricity.
