"The President has spoken, and he made clarification, and I seek clearance that I should proceed to work for implementation …he gave me very specific instructions," said Cusi as he delivered his speech during the inauguration of the San Gabriel and Avion natural gas power plants.


"I gave him assurance that we will not do it recklessly…the security on the use of nuclear and safety," he added.
