Rotimi Amaechi, Minister of Transportation, says the present administration is ready to provide 24-hour electricity supply for Nigerians if re-elected.

Amaechi stated this while addressing newsmen in Abuja, on Tuesday.

Highlighting the performance of the present administration under President Muhammadu Buhari, in the area of infrastructure development and fighting corruption, he said: “There is also an improvement in power. We have from 3000 megawatt to 7000, but we are distributing 5000 because some of the Infrastructures are not in good state but we are slowly fixing them.

“The expectation is that it should be 24 hours power supply, but there will still be a gap. But if you give us a second term, that gap will be closed.”

Speaking on the planned establishment of the Transportation University in Daura, Katsina State, he said there was nothing special about siting the university in the President’s hometown.

“The President did not even know I will choose Daura. The reason is Daura is part of Nigeria. If we site it in Sokoto, it is still part of Nigeria. So why is the emphasis on Daura?” he asked.

“If I had chosen Port Harcourt, Enugu, that is the same way I would have chosen Daura. The people of Daura should not be deprived of these things because the president is from there.”
