Presidential aspirant of the All Progressive Congress, Bola Tinubu, has revealed that Nigeria has enough gas to light up the entire country.
The APC National Leader also said the country has enough gas to power itself and also supply the rest of Europe.
He stated this while being hosted by South West Youths, who endorsed him as their presidential candidate over the weekend.
Tinubu further poured cold water on talks that Nigerian youths were lazy, saying they shouldn’t be tagged as being lazy in the face of erratic power supply.
He maintained that the country cannot experience rapid development without electricity, insisting that the excuse over power supply must end.
“We cannot continue with excuses on NEPA failure. No! No nation can make rapid development without electricity.
“Give us that, and if we cannot be successful, you can abuse us. You cannot give us erratic electricity that is undependable and then blame us again that we are lazy. No!
“Nigeria — it is about time. We have enough gas to fire up our electricity. We can supply the rest of Europe with gas, and we can make money from it.”
Tinubu’s comments refreshed those of President Muhammadu Buhari, who referred to Nigerian youths as being lazy in April 2018.
Buhari claimed thst most Nigerian youths just want to sit down and do nothing, but rely on government for everything.
