The Senate Tuesday rejected a prayer from Senator Francis Fadahunsi for a five-year temporary ban on the importation of generators to fast track the solution to the energy problems in Nigeria.
During a debate on the motion sponsored by Senator Chukwuka Utazi, on the need to address Nigeria’s power problems, Fadahunsin prayed the Senate to include in its prayers, the ban on importation of generators for five years but his colleagues shut down his suggestions.
When the Senate President, Ahmad Lawan subjected it to a voice vote, the Senators rejected the prayer.
However, it mandated its Committee on Power to investigate the activities of power generating and distribution companies to get to the root causes of unsteady power supply in Nigeria.
