Why I’m Not Happy With State Of Electricity In Nigeria – Buhari
President Muhammadu Buhari has stated that he is aware of Nigerians’ pains and hunger.
Buhari remarked in an interview aired on Channels Television on Wednesday that he is fully aware of the agony and pains that Nigerians are experiencing under his watch.
His journalist questioned the President if he was concerned about the number of Nigerians who are unable to feed themselves under his rule.
Buhari said: “I’m absolutely aware of it, but like I said, look at the vast population of Nigerians, only 2.5% of the land revenue is being cultivated.
“We realized this rather too late, but we have to go back to the land (agriculture).”
When asked if he is satisfied with the country’s capacity for electricity production, he said:
“I am not because I identify that no country can develop without infrastructure and infrastructure means road, rail and power.
“This government is working very hard on the road. Try to imagine what was happening between Lagos to Ibadan six months ago and what it is now.
“We are doing from Lagos to Kano by rail, road from here to Kaduna to Kano. So we have to get the infrastructure right and then Nigerians will mind their own business. But when the infrastructure is not there, the roads are not there, the rail is virtually killed, no power, what do we expect people to do?”
