The Minister of Power, Bayo Adelabu, has insisted that he is not losing focus on the plan to provide 24-hour electricity to Nigerians.
The Minister stated this in Ibadan, Oyo State, at the first Annual Socio-Economic Summit organised by Jericho Business Club.
According to Adelabu, the administrations that preceded the Tinubu government made efforts to solve the problems in the power sector.

He noted that measures and plans taken by those administrations were ineffective and rendered their policies useless.
“The agenda to provide 24-hour electricity for Nigerians is still on course and intact. Our people have suffered so much in terms of energy poverty,” he said.
The Minister said that he has the mandate to ensure that what is supposed to be done for a steady and effective electricity supply in the country is done.
He admitted, however, that the problems with the power sector are numerous.
He explained further that the power-generating sector has its own problems, coupled with those of the distribution companies and consumers.
“What we have done is to identify these challenges and map out strategies for enduring and workable solutions,” he added.
