Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola has said that even his children are suffering the effects of the poor power situation in the country.

Fashola made the disclosure on Tuesday, April 26, 2016, while appearing on Channels TV.

“It's a very hot season of the year. I see my children too sweating, having heat rash and they look at me like what are you doing about this thing. Let me be very clear, this problem can be solved," he said.

“It needs detailed and methodical approach. First work to do is to supply more gas because without gas, I am like a generator owner who can't get fuel, so I can't power my plants. There are errors of planning of yesterday but they are errors that can be corrected,” he added.

Fashola had earlier said, during a Town Hall meeting in Lagos, that the electricity being generated in the country is not enough to go round all Nigerians.
