Nigerians mock Power Minister Adebayo Adelabu after a power outage interrupts his budget presentation at the National Assembly, highlighting ongoing frustrations with electricity supply.

The incident underscores the need for comprehensive reforms in the energy sector to address the nation’s enduring power challenges.

In a moment of irony, Minister of Power, Chief Adebayo Adelabu, faced ridicule from Nigerians after a power outage interrupted his budget presentation at the National Assembly, highlighting the nation’s enduring power challenges.

VerseNews reports that during a joint committee session at the National Assembly, Chief Adelabu was in the midst of defending a proposed budget of N344 billion for the power ministry when the lights suddenly went out, plunging the room into darkness.

VerseNews gathered that the unexpected outage prompted incredulous reactions from lawmakers and spectators alike, with many expressing disbelief at the irony of a power minister losing electricity while advocating for a substantial budget allocation to the sector.

Social media platforms were soon flooded with memes and comments mocking the situation, with some users invoking the popular Christian hymn, “All Power Belongs To Jesus,” to underscore the perceived incompetence of the power minister.

This Online News Platform noted that the incident quickly became a trending topic, with Nigerians seizing the opportunity to vent their frustrations about the persistent power shortages and infrastructure deficiencies plaguing the country.

While Chief Adelabu attempted to reassure the assembly about imminent power generation projects and the government’s commitment to addressing energy poverty, the irony of the moment was not lost on observers.

Many questioned the effectiveness of allocating billions to the power ministry when basic electricity supply remained unreliable for millions of Nigerians.

Despite the minister’s explanations about infrastructure challenges and the exclusion of certain projects from the budget due to international arbitration, Nigerians remained skeptical about the prospects of meaningful progress in the energy sector.

The incident served as a sobering reminder of the deep-rooted issues facing Nigeria’s power infrastructure and the urgent need for comprehensive reforms and investments to ensure reliable and accessible electricity for all.

As Nigerians continue to grapple with daily power outages and disruptions, the mockery directed at Chief Adelabu underscores the frustration and disillusionment felt by many citizens who yearn for a solution to the nation’s enduring power woes.

The Minister of Power told Nigerians that he wanted the govt to give him and his Ministry $10 billion every year to be able to give the country power.

It fell on deaf ears. Nigerians called him “ole.” The National Assembly sef shock at such bold “thiefry.”

So, the Minister was invited to the National Assembly to discuss his Ministry plans and policies. He thought “what’s a better way to convince these colleagues of mine in this L00TING business if not to go total blackout and put the building in darkness?”

Then, as soon as they began, light went off and everyone started shouting and murmuring. Now, they’re paying “close attention to everything he’s saying.”

Las las Minister will leave the building, smiling back to his office – $10 billion or close to that amount is sure.

If you don’t understand this…read it again.

Hope this helps 👍”
