“Within eight months we’ve launched planting for food and jobs, eight months we’re walking the talk. We don’t want to talk too much, we’ll deliver… Dumsor is banished, dumsor is gone because we’re committed to ensuring that without electricity and energy there can’t be industrialization. We have banished dumsor to make sure that businesses have everything to do to improve”, he said.
