Will power improve if Atiku is elected president because he owns a generator importation business? – See Atiku’s response

The presidential candidate of the Opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Atiku Abubakar has said that he would improve the electricity situation of the country, if elected as President, because he doesn’t enjoy the billions he spends generating power with diesel.

The former vice president said this, during the #AskAtiku hash tag on Twitter on Wednesday, in which Nigerians engaged the presidential candidate in a question and answer session.

A Twitter user with the handle @ofishea had sarcastically said that power will never improve, if Atiku is elected in the February 16th presidential election because he owns a business that imports generators.

The question

Me: You own a generator importation company, will Nigeria have power supply if you become president?

Atiku: Of course, Nigerians are more important to me than my company.

Me: O jewa ke eng?

Atiku: I’ll make sure there are no power supply, so i can sell my generators.

Atiku’s response

My friend, I know you meant this as a joke, but the power situation in Nigeria is not funny.

As a businessman, I don’t enjoy the billions I spend generating power with diesel.
