lack of electricity supply




OWERRI—A stakeholder in Imo State, Perry-Uchenna Ekwunazu, yesterday, observed that lack of electricity supply had increased the level of impoverishment in the Nigerian communities. He spoke to Vanguard in Umuaka, Njaba Local Government Area, in the state, on the hardship currently being experienced by Nigerians. He reasoned that “political leaders in the nation had jettisoned purposeful vision and co-ordinated approach in dealing with the challenges in transforming the country.” He said: “Nigerian political leaders have not been mindful of the strategic challenges and developmental expectations which include the provisions of electricity supply to our rural areas. “I believe that it will go a long way in addressing the myriad of problems we have in our communities as well as address the issue of poverty.” Ekwunazu was of the expectation that more laws were needed to assist the executive in addressing the pressing issues in the country for the good of the governed. “I think, we need more laws to assist the executive in finding solutions to problems in this country, laws that will impact directly on the electorate,”
