As I type this, I’m in my parent’s house in Lagos and we haven’t had power for 2 days straight,it hasn’t even blinked! Before then it was off and on, more off than on. So when I watched Christian Amanpour‘s interview last week with our dear president in Davos on CNN, I was shocked when he told Amanpour that the country’s electrical woes improved. His exact words were “That is one area that Nigerians are quite pleased with the government, that commitment to improve power. It’s working,” I don’t know what Nigerians he surveyed to come up with this ludicrous assertion but it certainly wasn’t me or anyone I know.
Anyway back to the reason for this post, Christian Amanpour did a follow up to GEJ’s power improvement claims, and spoke to a few Nigerians.
Watch below the video “What Nigeria and the Super Bowl have in common” which aired on CNN 4th of February.
