Nigerians live, breathe, feed, study and procreate in darkness. This no doubt is unbefeating and undesirable for any people in civilized societies. 
I believe strongly that what is missing isn’t the resources (endowment) to put things in order; but the “man power” in the person of the Minister of Power of our country Nigeria. 

What then is desirable of a Minister of Power in Nigeria? 

In my thinking:

1. The Minister of Power befitting for a nation like Nigeria, owing to the reality on ground should be one who is equal to the task of giving Nigerians what is due; what resources goes into that ministry. 
2. The Minister we need is and should be that sacrificial, tough, meticulous and sincere leader that will lead Nigeria out of darkness.
3. We Need A minister of power who will read power, think power, speak power, dream power, write power, advocate power &
4. A Minister Power only, and not be distracted by other business of equal importance requiring equal attention such as the Ministry of Works, and that of Housing.
The Need for power in order to attain any national Vision like Nigeria’s V20:20:2020, The NEEDS, SEEDS, LEEDS etc, cannot be over emphasized.

• We all know that the engine of life the world over, is the uninterrupted electrical power supply. 
• We also know that there is a very strong link between the per capita consumption of electrical power and the state of physical advancement of a nation. This means that if the energy consumed per person in a nation is very high, more industries will be working, which leads to a strong nation. 
• The inadequacy in the supply of electricity on the other hand means all the artisans and several commercial and industrial outfits would not be able to contribute productively to the national development through their various trades. The attendant results are the evident poverty and lack of development at all facets of the economy.
• Inevitably, if all things remained the same, Nigeria would have to forfeit/give up her dreams as contained in the Kuru Declaration Vision20:20:2020 of becoming one of the greatest 20 economies of the world by year 2020 in 20 years time from the time of articulation of this Vision at the dawn of the Millennium. 

Finally, considering the above, I will like to call on the Federal government to relieve the Federal Minister of Power, Works and Housing of the added responsibilities of Administering Housing and Works ministries in order to concentrate on the work of power  and thereby leading Nigeria out of darkness.
