…Says, “Ensure stable power supply to Nigeria.”
by Achadu Gabriel, Kaduna
A Pro-democracy group under the guise of ‘Nationwide Electricity Provision Advocates’ (N.E.P.A.), has reminded the Federal Government and other players in the power sector of their pledge to recommit themselves to a common purpose of bringing an end to what they described as “generational shame and suffering,” and ensure stable power supply to all Nigerians.
The group, in the statement titled: ‘Democracy Day Address, June 12: 2020: hope 1993 farewell to poverty’” lamented that this 1993 slogan is still a mirage amidst Nigerian citizens today.
President of the NEPA and activist, Bako Abdul Usman, in a democracy day address made available to journalists in Kaduna on Friday stated that their address marked a turning point in the provision of endless darkness in Nigeria.
“Let There Be Light.” “We pray that this candlelight address marks a turning point in the provision of endless darkness in our land along with a renewed resolve by the Federal Government along with all other players in the sector to recommit themselves to a common purpose of bringing an end to this generational shame we suffer, and ensure stable power supply to all Nigerians,” the president stated.
NEPA expressed deepest respect and offer their most profound gratitude to all those, who have worked tirelessly since Independence, to ensure the enthronement of democracy in Nigeria.
The group noted that many, at considerable personal cost, even paid the ultimate price in that endeavour.
“Today, we remember one such patriot in the name of Moshood Kashimawo Abiola, and we salute his courage and dedication as well as his dream for a Great Nation and ask ourselves, if we are anywhere closer to achieving that dream or moving inexorably closer to a failed nation, as we appear unable to provide the necessary foundations that will ensure those dreams turn into reality,” it stated and, therefore, wished all Nigerians very Happy Democracy Day.
