The deputy spokesman of the House of Representatives, Chief Philip Agbese, has expressed his support for the recent decision made by Betta Edu, the Minister of Humanitarian Affairs and Poverty Alleviation, to suspend the N-Power scheme. This decision, which transpired in October, comes in the wake of controversies surrounding the program.
Agbese, speaking to reporters in Abuja on Sunday, commended Minister Edu for taking a fresh and distinctive approach in addressing the issues associated with the N-Power scheme. He highlighted the importance of such innovative measures in steering the program towards a more effective and transparent direction.
Emphasizing the need for sustained efforts in bringing about positive change, Agbese urged Minister Edu not to waver in her commitment to revamp the system. Additionally, he called upon other ministers to draw inspiration from Edu’s proactive stance and encouraged them to adopt similar strategies in tackling challenges within their respective domains.
In his word he said “Unlike time past, Edu has even halted the controversial N-Power scheme. She intends to expand the programme to eventually accommodate more less privileged Nigerians.
“I’m excited about what is ahead. My advice for this woman is to keep the fire burning. Meanwhile, other ministers can learn from her as what we need in this country now is results.”
