APC commends Jonathan on achievements in power sector

The All Progressives Congress, APC, has commended President Goodluck Jonathan’s administration for its undeniable achievements in the power sector.

The party’s Publicity Secretary, Mr. Lai Mohammed maintained that the party, assuming they were elected, are willing to maintain and improve on the many economic policies of the Goodluck Jonathan administration if elected into power next month with emphasis on the power sector.

“We are fairly satisfied with the unbundling of the state-owned power utilities”.

It is worthy to note that under the present administration, the power sector was privatized as the hydro-and gas-powered plants were sold in 2013 to try to bring in investment needed to expand electricity supply in a country that suffers from daily blackouts.

The APC according to Mohammed will look to improve generation by encouraging companies to go into joint ventures with foreign firms
