President Goodluck Jonathan has reiterated his commitment to the transformation of the Nations’ power sector and the overall economy as a whole.

Jonathan made this known on Sunday through his Special Assistant on Public Affairs, Dr. Doyin Okupe in a statement.

President Jonathan assured Nigerians that he will not rest in his effort to provide uninterrupted power supply to Nigerian which he described as a key component of his transformation agenda.

According to him, most Nigerian cities will have more hours of power supply from the National grid with some of the hydro dams becoming fully operational in September this year as that will improve social and economic activities, increase industrial productions as well as create jobs for young Nigerians.

“The federal government had concluded plans to remove its control of the power sector”.

“The good news however is that governments control with its attendant low productivity and the cumbersomeness of the civil service bureaucracy are being totally removed from the power sector and the new owners of the divested assets will be able to utilize the present installed capacities more efficiently and add more power to the five thousand megawatts even before they add more infrastructure to the power plants”. The statement read.
