Former Minister of National Planning, Shamsudeen Usman, has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to come up with a set target on how to tackle the power challenge in Nigeria.

Dr. Usman, who spoke at a meeting in Abuja on Saturday, also advocated for a system to monitor success being made.

He said, “It is only when this is done that the nation can achieve the much desired socio-economic development.”

He stressed that topmost in the needs of Nigerians was power supply.

At the meeting, other experts were of the opinion that the models used in tackling power challenges and the activities of pipeline vandals contributed to lack of steady power supply.

They suggest the full implementation of past policies which were formulated to make the sector vibrant.

While others have come up with resolutions on how best government can tackle the issue of electricity in the country, it remains to be seen if the decisions reached at the meeting will be used to add value to the development of the power sector in Nigeria. (Channels TV)
