I Never Said Power Can Be Fixed Within Six Months – Fashola

Babatunde Fashola, Minister of Power, Works and Housing has denied ever saying that a serious government would fix power sector challenges within six months…

“I challenge members of the public to produce any video evidence where I made such comment. I have the video of what I said and where I said it and I think it was in 2014 in the run-off to the election and I was in Lekki, Lagos.”

“The comment was made during the inauguration of the Lekki Independent Power Project when I was governor of Lagos State. My statement had to do with the connection of residents of Lekki to the IPP within six months if the state government had received the approval to do so.”

“You may disagree with me, but I challenge anybody who has an alternative set of facts. We have the video here and we can play what I said and you can listen to it. If you have a different version, bring it out. I challenge you!”
