Kaduna — Senator Mohammad Magoro has said that the poor power supply in the country is responsible for the current insecurity situation facing the country.
Magoro, while receiving executives of the Kebbi Indigenes Association resident in Kaduna, lamented that textile industries collapsed as a result of lack of adequate power supply from the PHCN, leading to unemployment which according to him gave birth to youth restiveness in the country.
Senator Magoro however added that seven companies, who have received gas supply will soon commence work which will be able to improve the power situation in the country.
"Nigerian Railway Corporation (NRC) used to be the highest employer of labour, but unfortunately we used our hands to kill it", he said.
Responding, the acting chairman of the group, Alhaji Ibrahim Yauri, commended the senator for receiving them.
