Shehu Sani, a former Senator who represented Kaduna Central Senatorial District in the 8th Senate, on Tuesday opined that Nigeria appears the African version of Ukraine presently,as nation-wide blackout persists.
Sani, who expressed his thoughts,wrote: “They told us that if NEPA is privatized, darkness will be things of the past. With DISCOs it has become things of the present”.
In a similar Tweet, the former lawmaker commented on the state of the country, particularly the widening issues of insecurity, and ASUU strike among others, adding that Nigeria appears the African version of Ukraine presently.
“National grid on the verge of collapse, airlines companies to shut down in three days, terrorists on killing spree and then ASUU…we are just the African version of Ukraine at the moment and further stressed the lack of sincerity by the federal government as the main factor responsible for the unfortunate trend.
He stressed that privatization of the power sector, which ousted National Electronic Power Authority (NEPA) in favour of Power Distribution Companies resulted in epileptic power supply which Nigerians contend with today.
In another tweet , Sani wrote: “They told us that if NEPA is privatized, darkness will be things of the past. With DISCOs it has become things of the present”.Adding that the privatisation only hardened the situation of the past by making the present seemingly difficult for nigerians.
