Following the recent epileptic power supply witnessed in the country recently, the federal government has said it will go after pipeline vandals and power infrastructure saboteurs and bring them to book. 

Recall that the the national transmission facility in Osogbo and Ikeja Disco were shutdown by some unionists last week; an action the FG described as an economic sabotage.

The minister of information and culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed in a statement issued in Abuja by his special adviser, Segun Adeyemi said the repeated attacks on oil and gas pipelines and wilful shutdown of power facilities by protesters amount to economic sabotage. 

“Vandals, whatever their motives are, cannot and will not be treated with kid-gloves because their actions constitute a clear and present danger to the nation’s economic, social and political well being. 

“The attack on the Forcados Export Terminal that has affected gas production by oil firms and reduced gas supply to power generating plants and the shutdown of the Utorogu gas plant are totally condemnable and cannot be allowed to continue. 

“Also, while this administration will not do anything to abridge the constitutional rights of any individual or group to carry out protests, it will also not tolerate a situation in which anyone will hide under the guise of legitimate protests to sabotage power infrastructure. 

“The shutdown of the national transmission facility in Osogbo and the Ikeja Disco by some unionists amount to economic sabotage,” he said. Mohammed said the government was aware that as it steps up the fight against corruption, “corruption will vigorously fight back in many forms, including the destruction/sabotage of key national infrastructure to make the government look bad”. 

“However, nothing will make this government to slow down in its anti-corruption fight and no one who is corrupt will be spared,” he assured. 

The minister appealed to Nigerians to join hands with the government to check the activities of unpatriotic elements, who have taken it upon themselves to work against the people’s interest. READ 

“When oil and gas facilities are vandalised, the impact is felt directly by Nigerians. When power infrastructure is sabotaged for whatever reasons, Nigerians bear the brunt. 

While those actions may be aimed at discrediting the government, those who pay the price are the vast majority of innocent, law-abiding and well-meaning Nigerians, not the vandals or the saboteurs. “This is why Nigerians must not allow the few recreants behind these attacks to hold sway.”

 He said the power situation is gradually improving as generation has now increased to around 4,000MW. In the same vein, the minister of state for petroleum resources, Mr Ibe Kachikwu, has assured that the prevailing fuel queues would gradually ease in the next few days.
