Fashola, who gave the counsel while marking 2,600 days in office at an elaborate ceremony held at the Blue Roof on the Lagos Television premises, said electricity power crisis in the country is caused by lack of ideas and insincerity of purpose on the part of Federal Government.

He said: “Yes I agree with you that it is possible to generate electricity and to make sure that everybody in this country has electricity. I agree with you it is simple. What we have done in Lagos within the areas where we are constrained show that it can be done . But you know  the only way that you and I will have electricity in this country will be  to vote out the PDP.”
