Civil Society Union of Nigeria, CSUN, the umbrella body of civil society organisations in Nigeria, has called on the federal government to increase investment in the power sector as a major step to solving several challenges facing the country.
National President of the group, Comrade Femi Osabinu, said yesterday in Abuja that Nigeria is on the right parts towards attaining stability in the power sector, noting that the Muhammadu Buhari administration was serious about delivering stable power supply to the people as promised.
Osabinu said regular power supply is a priority as that is one major way to create jobs for teeming Nigerians and reduce the rate of crimes in the society.
He informed that a visit by the group to the headquarters of the Niger Delta Power Holding Company, NDPHC shows that there is commitment and sincerity on the part of the government and the management of NDPHC to bring an end to epileptic power supply in the nation.
He said: “In setting agenda for this government, it has always been a priority for the masses to have stable power supply as that is one major way to create jobs for teeming Nigerians and reduce the rate of crimes in the society, hence, the reason to look at the power sector carefully led the leadership of CSUN to visit the headquarters of the Niger Delta Power Holding Company (NDPHC).
“We can say that Nigeria is on the right parts towards attaining stability in the power sector, as it is obvious that this government is serious at delivering stable power supply to the people in line with their campaign promises and the management of NDPHC under Mr. James Olotu is doing wonderfully well, though there is room for improvement as Nigerians cannot wait longer”, Osabinu said.
He therefore called on the private sector to take advantage of the ongoing reforms in the sector and commit more investment into the sector.
The CSUN president described power as an economic mover in any nation and therefore said all hands must be on deck in Nigeria to ensure that the sector attain its economic potential while Nigerians livelihood is enhanced.
