Jovenel Moise: "18 to 24 months for Haiti to have electricity 24 hours"

Folks, this is something that should be recorded. Haitian President Jovenel Moise testified that all Haiti will have electricity, 24 hour a day, 7 days a week between 18 and 24 months from now. According to Moise, ""I've given myself 18 to 24 months for Haiti to have electricity 24 hours around the clock".


This is not the first time that this ambitious promise to bring 24 hours electricity to Haiti was made. Few years ago, we heard similar promise from former Prime Minister Laurent Lamothe. However, it did not materialize
was made

Jovenel Moise did not explain how his cash-strapped government plans to pay for 24 hours electricity. He only spoke of prioritizing production and making Haitians pay for energy upfront.

Do you think having electricity in Haiti on a 24 hours basis is possible?

Do you think our president is bluffing?
