THE electricity generating companies have been citing the lack of gas supplies as the major reason they have not been able to provide stable electricity supply to Nigerians.
However, if this is the case, nothing stops these companies from diversifying into other sources of power generation.
We have several other sources of power like solar, wind, among others, which can be used to power the country.
Surprisingly, experts in developed countries are already generating power from animal faeces.
Nigeria needs electricity to develop. The 5,000 megawatts of electricity we are generating is so small compared to our population of 180 million.
It is high time we thought of ways through which we can increase our electricity generation.
Nigerians are already tired of hearing excuses that the ongoing sabotage of oil pipelines by Niger Delta militants is responsible for the epileptic power supply in the country. I know Mr Babatunde Raji Fashola will do something about this.
