Power: FG deploys electronic monitors to check vandalism


The Minister of State, , Mr. Mohammed Wakil, on Saturday said the Federal Government had started installing to check of gas pipelines as part of measures aimed at ensuring regular supply.

Sounding confident that the recent privatisation of the sector carried out by the present administration would soon yield visible result, he said South Africa has started emulating the exercise which he said had become a model for many other countries.

Wakil said this in an interview with journalists in Abuja.

The minister boasted that in due course, Nigerians would soon be taking supply for granted in the country.

He said, “In due course, supply will become what Nigerians can take for granted. We are expanding investment in transmission sector through involvement of the private sector.

“The distribution companies are investing in system upgrade, like South Africa is about to start.

“The generation companies are busy with upgrade especially after the administration had addressed the gas-to-power issue.

“We are installing to check incessant of gas pipelines by enemies of the nation.”
