Rise Up And Demand For Change – LP Presidentail Candidate, Peter Obi Begs Nigerians

Rise Up And Demand For Change – LP Presidentail Candidate, Peter Obi Begs Nigerians.

The Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi has urged Nigerians to rise and demand for right change. He made the call on Thursday while lamenting about the the country’s epileptic power supply. The presidential candidate said it was time for Nigerians to demand what was right from the country’s leaders. In a series of tweets on Thursday, the former Anambra State governor noted Nigerians should take a cue from global best practices and effect good leadership.

He wrote, “Nigeria’s epileptic electricity supply remains a matter of deep concern. Although South Africa, the second biggest economy on the continent has a population of over 60 million, and generates over 50,000 megawatts.

“Her authorities are currently complaining of an energy crisis; thus compelling President Ramaphosa to declare an emergency situation and an intervention policy permitting private persons or corporations to generate up to 100 megawatts without licenses.

“Nigeria, the African giant with over 200 million people, generates a paltry 4000 megawatts, which is less than 10% of South Africa’s without declaring a power crisis or emergency.

“Nigerians should take a cue from global governance best practices; grasp what people-oriented leadership is all about and rise up for effective change. – PO”

The PUNCH had last week Wednesday reported that the national power grid collapsed again.

The Eko Electricity Distribution Company confirmed that the grid collapse occurred at about 11:27 am.

“Dear customers, we regret to inform you of a system collapse on the national grid at precisely 11:27 am today, Wednesday, July 20. We are in talks with the Transmission Company of Nigeria to ascertain the cause of the collapse and a possible restoration timeline.

“We will keep you updated on the situation,” the Disco said via its Twitter handle on Wednesday.

The collapse of the national power grid made it the sixth time this year, as The PUNCH reported on June 13 that the grid had collapsed for the fifth time in 2022.

Nigeria’s power grid had collapsed twice in March and twice again in April this year, as the power generation on the system had continued to fluctuate due to various concerns such as gas constraints, water management challenges, and gas pipeline vandalism, among others.

In April, The PUNCH reported that the quantum of electricity on the grid crashed from over 3,000MW on April 8, 2022, to as low as 10MW around 21.00 hours the same day.

The report further stated that another collapse of the grid occurred on April 9, 2022, as the nation’s power system collapsed to 33MW around 01.00 hours after it had earlier posted a peak generation of 3,281.50MW at 00.00 hours the same day.

Also, the national grid collapsed twice in March and this happened within a space of two days, a development that made the Federal Government summon a meeting of stakeholders to address the issue.

Kid Cudi Clarifies Drake Comments Following Explosive Interview

Kid Cudi Clarifies Drake Comments Following Explosive Interview.

Kid Cudi recently made some very interesting comments during an interview with Esquire. Cudi spoke about his relationship with none other than Kanye West and how it has become completely fractured. Cudi believes that Kanye is in a very bad place right now, but it remains difficult to forgive him for everything that has happened, especially in light of the Pete Davidson drama. Simply put, these two won’t be friends again, anytime soon.

“With all due respect, I’m not Drake, who’s about to take a picture with him next week and be friends again, and their beef is squashed,” Cudi explained. “That’s not me. What I say, I mean. I will be done with you. It’s gonna take a motherfucking miracle for me and that man to be friends again. I don’t see it happening. He gon’ have to become a monk.”

Cudi’s mentioning of Drake raised a few eyebrows, although Cudi is setting the record straight on that. While taking to Twitter, Cudi made it clear that he has a lot of love and respect for Drake, and that he never meant to disparage the superstar artist.

“Just to be clear, I wasnt tryna throw a shot at Drake. I got love 4 him,” Cudi said. “My point I was tryna make is that im not so forgiving. Meaning he might be a lil nicer than me in that situation w dude. Thats all. Maybe that came off wrong thru my words. So yea, all good w Drake.”

Cudi has had a contentious past with Drake, but now, they are on better terms than he and Ye. It’s the sad reality of the situation, although someday, we hope they can reconcile.
