Ukpabi said the documentary will serve as a wake-up call for those lagging behind in executing electricity power projects in the public and private sectors, while functioning as an informative tool for Nigerians at home,in the Diaspora and international community.

According to him: “The film analyses Nigeria’s electricity power situation with different views from different people and celebrates those contributing towards a Nigeria of steady electricity power supply.

“Nigeria’s 1st Light up Awards 2012 in view of the timeline within which the electricity power projects that won them various awards at the LIGHT UP AWARDS 2012 were executed and in consideration of other factors too.

Ukpabi affirmed that Project Light Up Nigeria will keep watching Nigeria’s power sector as a civil ombudsman by availing Nigerians at home and in the diaspora the platform to appraise the electricity power performance of elected public officials and private sector players.

He further stated that the documentary named some people Heroes of Nigeria’s 1st Light up Awards 2012 in view of the timeline within which the electricity power projects that won them various awards at the LIGHT UP AWARDS 2012 were executed and in consideration of other factors too.

“This 45 minutes documentary film analysed Nigeria’s electricity power situation with different views

from different people and celebrates those contributing towards a Nigeria of steady electricity power supply and well lit up streets at night as confirmed by the results of Nigeria’s 1st Light Up awards organised by the group late last year.

“The documentary which will soon be on foreign and local television stations, various social media networks, and on the group’s website is in consonance with the sole objective of the group which is to

recognise, appreciate and encourage those contributing to a Nigeria of steady electricity power supply and well lit up streets at night based on the age long proven norm that encouragement leads to more achievement,” he said
