The West Only Began To Enjoy Constant Light In The 1960s, So Nigeria Is On Track

We always talk about Europe and America as if they've ALWAYS had constant light from the get go, with no problems. Nothing could be further from the truth. They suffered their fair share of POWER CUTS and NO POWER ACCESS right up till the 196OS. 1960s is like yesterday, in terms of our world. As stated by research: ''In the 19th and early 20th century, electricity was not part of the everyday life of many people, even in the industrialised Western world. The popular culture of the time accordingly often depicted it as a mysterious, quasi-magical force that can slay the living, revive the dead or otherwise bend the laws of nature. With electricity ceasing to be a novelty and becoming a necessity of everyday life in the later half of the 20th century, it required particular attention by popular culture only when it stops flowing'' ''The oldest American power lines date back to the 1880s, and most of today’s grid was built in the 1950s and 1960s with a 50-year life expectancy.'' So Nigeria is not going through what America or England did not go through in their development. We WILL succeed.
