Fashola asks Immigration to probe Egbin Power boss

Written by on September 12, 2017

The Minister of Power, Works and housing, Babatunde Fashola, has asked the Nigeria Immigration Service to investigate the Managing Director of Egbin Power Plc, Dallas Peavey Jnr., an American, over his visa and work permit status in Nigeria.

Fashola, who disclosed this at his 19th monthly meeting with operators in the electricity industry in Lagos on Monday, alleged that the Egbin Power Plc boss entered the country on August 16 without a visa.

Accusing the American of working against Nigeria’s interest, Fashola alleged that Peavey had lied about the quantity of power being produced by the company, the capacity of the country’s transmission system and the amount of debt owed electricity companies by government’s Ministries, Departments and Agencies.

Fashola said Peavey had ignored his directive that the industry should project hope rather than cynicism, adding that he had told visitors that came to Egbin from America lies about the Nigerian electricity industry.
