Osinbajo added that the government let go of power marketing in such a way that many players could come in to do more from generation to distribution.

“l want to thank you for the support you have given us over the years and hope that you will not only maintain that support, but also work with us in being able to create a better business environment and being able to do the kind of businesses that can be done in Nigeria.”
