Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, has denied promising to deliver constant power to Nigerians in six months.

Fashola made the denial on Tuesday, May 24, 2016, while appearing on a programme on the Nigerian Television Authority (NTA), Punch reports.

“I have heard that I said that electricity problem will be solved in six months. I have never made the statement,” the minister said.

“Anybody who has a video of where I said this should please make it public. The point I made was when I was handing over the Lekki IPP because we had about 10 megawatts of power there,” he added.

Fashola was sworn in as a minister by President Muhammadu Buhari on November 11, 2015.
