He said collapse will be a thing of history under his watch if elected in 2023.

Obi said this in reaction to news of yet another collapse of the national grid, on Monday which he described as disturbing.

According to Obi, his strategic plan will ensure that Nigerians enjoy an adequate and stable power supply from 2023 onwards.

In a statement via his verified Twitter handle on Wednesday, Obi tweeted, “The report of yet another collapse is very disturbing to me, and is a reminder of the long rescue and recovery journey ahead of us. Effective power generation, transmission and distribution remain a national security issue.

“This also places power on the front burner of campaign and policy. Painfully, this latest episode is the 7th collapse in 2022,” he said.

Obi further stated, “As part of the Obi-Datti policy plan, we have put together a strategic plan to progressively scale up power generation, and the liberalisation of the transmission infrastructure in the country, to ensure that Nigerians enjoy adequate and stable power supply from 2023 onwards. Power is critical to the development and sustainability of all sectors of the national economy.

“For us, power remains a top priority. Under my watch, national grid collapse will become a matter of history and a reference point for erstwhile administrations. -PO,” he added.
