The Presidency seems to be in a state of utopia as concerns the year 2013. Doyin Okupe, Special Assistant to the President, speaking to journalists in Lagos over the weekend, said, “The year 2013 will be Nigeria’s year of glory; a year of our manifestation. It will be the year of many changes in all facets of life. President Jonathan will fix Nigeria.
“There will be a very significant forward progress in the economy of Nigeria through massive job creation in the different sectors, which will lead to wealth creation and massive reduction in criminal activities. The President is committed to delivering on his pact with the Nigerian people as contained in his Transformation Agenda.
“He is unwavering in that commitment and will, by the grace of God, take this nation to a greater destination. Nigerians must not despair. There is a glorious tomorrow for this great nation.”
Speaking on Power Supply in the country, he said, “As I speak to you, most of the challenges earlier identified have been resolved while others are receiving due attention of the Federal Government. Above 95 per cent of the10 IPPs (Independent Power Projects) have been completed. Our power generation has hit an all time high of 4,502 megawatts.”
“We project a power generation of 7000 megawatts by middle of the new year.”
