Bob Manuel Udokwu has revealed his frustration with the situation of power supply in the country and fears only bloodshed can bring about adequate change.
The Veteran Nollywood actor, while speaking during an interview with Punch Newspapers, disclosed his own struggle with power supply and what may have to be done to curb the situation.
Speaking during the interview, Bob Manuel said:
” I now use generators more than most Nigerians. We have no choice due to the poor power supply in the country. I rely mostly on the generator for my power needs.
“I have three generators in my house. It is not deliberate and it is not to prove to be rich, but it is because of the condition we have found ourselves in this country. I run one in the morning, one in the afternoon and one in the night. By doing this, I will be able to lengthen the lifespan of the generators. Of course, running the generator throughout the day creates a deep hole in the pocket, but what can we do with the epileptic power supply in the country?”
The actor further emphasized that a change in the system may never occur except there is bloodshed while challenging the government to make a move on the situation.
“Some of the importers are big people in this country who are doing everything they can to not make power supply improve. Some of them partially own the companies that manufacture generators. These people are in the government and wield huge influence. I am pessimistic we can succeed in getting good power supply again in this country. If it is ever going to happen, it will involve the shedding of blood because the cabal will be ready to do anything for their business to keep thriving. I am putting this as a challenge to the government, let them prove me wrong. We can never get stable power supply again in this country.”
Bob Manuel joins a host of other celebrities who have cried out concerning the situation of power supply in the country amongst other things.
