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.”
The governor further said: “They started from vision 2020-20 and I told you then that they were having nightmare. There was no vision. They moved to a seven-point agenda and now they are transforming.
