A presidential aspirant on the platform of the Save Nigeria Congress(SNC), Ayo Da-Silva, has said that he will solve Nigeria’s electricity crisis within two and half years if voted into power in the 2019 presidential election.
Da-Silva, a former House of Representatives candidate in the 2011 general elections in Lagos State, made the assertion in Abuja on Tuesday during a media parley with some select journalists.
He said he had done an extensive research on how the epileptic power situation in the country can be solved once and for all having visited almost five countries across different continents to understudy their power challenges and how they overcame them
Da-Silva, a health administrator in the United States of America, said his party, SNC, was out to liberate Nigerians from the crutches of grinding poverty through people-friendly programs which are subsumed with his 14-poin agenda.
Some of the 14-point agenda include provision of energy and power round the clock; employment and job security for all; national security of lives and property; agriculture; world class healthcare system; social welfare system; education and reduction of illiteracy; infrastructure; investment economy.
He also listed some of his agenda for the country to include housing for all through mortgage financing system, nationwide industrialization project; youth and women empowerment; foreign policy and diaspora involvement; media, tourism, culture and development of the entertainment industry.
Realizing how difficult it will be to dislodge the dominant political structure in the country with his relatively new party, Da-Silva said he had all it takes to disrupt the status quo and ensure that Nigerians get a new lease of life under the SNC.
He called on the media to help educate the voting public on the evil of vote buying and how it has denied them of having quality and competent hands at the helm of affairs across various leadership strata in the country.
