Why PDP govt failed in power sector – Atiku

Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar said on Monday in Kaduna that the Peoples Democratic Party-led Federal Government adopted the wrong approach in tackling the power sector crisis
“During our administration, there was no transparency and accountability in the oil and gas industry. There was a time we were handed a Ghana-Must-Go memo on the oil and gas and the President asked for our input and I refused to support it,” he added.
Atiku explained that the Obasanjo government took the wrong approach in tackling the power challenges and ended up spending several billions of dollars on the sector without appreciable results.
According to Punch, he said the President Goodluck Jonathan-led government took the same step, which accounted for the current epileptic power supply in the country today.
The ex-VP believed that the incoming government  of Maj. Gen. Muhammadu Buhari(retd.) could find the political will to reverse the privatisation of the power sector for Nigeria to move on.
