Former Governor Of Cross River State and Presidential Candidate Of The Social Democratic Party, Donald Duke has outlined plans to fix electricity problem salvaging the nation in three years.
Speaking on Channels Television Sunday Politics, the former governor confidently believes that the country must leverage on its abundance of gas by leveraging on flared gas.
“Get manufacturing off the national grid, put them on gas. I will charge the gas relatively low, really low because you are flaring it,”
“Leave domestic and small scale (businesses) on the national grid. In 24 months, you can have a national gas grid; in 24 months, you can have gas throughout this country if you are serious.” he said.
“Maximum of 36 months,” he said the job would take. “This is a nation that flares until recently 2.5 billion cubic feet of gas – that is equivalent to about 25 million litres of diesel.” he added.
