Power outage interrupts Jonathan
Nigeria's President Jonathan's first Easter Sunday service and celebration in Lagos was marred by an embarrassing power outage at the Our Saviour's Church Marina, where the President worshipped.
Whilst the President Jonathan was delivering his speech to the congregation, the lights went out.
He however vowed that by next year, the power in the church will be uninterrupted. Laughing along with the congregation, Dr Jonathan remarked that "with the power outage, officials of the Power Holding Company of Nigeria are telling him not to sleep until the nation's power crisis is fixed."
It will be recalled that earlier this year, in an interview with CNN's Christiane Amanpour, Jonathan claimed that average Nigerians on the streets of Lagos and Nigeria are happy with his achievements on Power. He said that: “That is one area where Nigerians are quite pleased with the government – that our commitment to improve power is working... I promise you before the end of this year, power outages will be reasonably stable in Nigeria.”
