I will surely fix power sector before I leave office – Buhari | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper

Poised to engender good governance in Nigeria, President Muhammadu Buhari has said he would surely solve the country’s perennial electricity problem, fix the Niger Delta security problem and also improve the infrastructural status before leaving office.


He also said that public office holders in Nigeria must be made to be accountable, restating the determination of his administration to restore the country to the “good old days of accountability”.

The president spoke at a meeting with the Director, Global Upstream of Shell Oil Company at the State House, Abuja, on Tuesday. “It is only by doing this that investor morale and confidence will return, and the economy will be positioned on the path of growth,” the President said.

President Buhari, who commended Shell for their faith in the economy and staying power, gave assurances on some issues of concern raised by the company. On the protracted issue of cash calls, the President assured that the Federal Executive Council will soon consider a proposal for the easing of unpaid arrears owed by the government.

President Buhari said that the security of oil infrastructure will continue to be prioritized side-by-side with dialogue with the stakeholder-communities in the Niger Delta. He, however, urged oil companies to take more responsibility in the protection of oil installations to complement the efforts of Nigerian Navy in the region. According to a statement by Garba Shehu, the senior special assistant on media and publicity, the Shell Director, Mr. Andrew Brown, in his remarks told the President of the resumption of oil exportation through the Forcados terminal following its restoration.

He called for continued protection by the Nigerian Navy in view of repeated threats of attack by militants. Brown commended the anti-corruption posture of the Buhari administration as well as the efforts to streamline and stabilize the economy for long term projects, saying all the efforts will go a long way to reinforce Shell investment plans in Nigeria.

  1. A great philosopher said " great minds discuss ideas but little minds discuss people. Perhaps he had APC in mind. You can fix the power problems if you shun all the vices you brought into governance. There are enough of them to impeach you but Nigeria is not a nation. Let continue to watch but you know talk is cheap

    1. Saka or wetin be your name sef? This platform is for matured brains & minds and not for a 12yrs old boy like you. So stop making comments here and look for a platform where people like you exist.
      I really hate when you come out here to criticize every move taken by this administration to correct the mess left behind by the PDP administration when you've definitely got no solution whatsoever in that your empty skull.
      Thanks.
