Akon claims that his organization Akon Lighting Africa could have restored power to Puerto Rico within 30 days after the disastrous Hurricane Maria devastated the island, TMZ reported. But the government turned down his plan.
“We actually presented a program for Puerto Rico and we got rejected. We had the solution for Puerto Rico, clearly. We would have power up in less than 30 days, and they rejected us. It’s politics, propaganda, and special interests. They didn’t care about the people—if that was the case, they would have allowed us to go in and provide the solution. But I think it was bigger than numbers at that point,” Akon told TMZ. See Video>>>
