The Federal Government has warned that it would deal ruthlessly with those engaged in pipeline vandalism and destruction of power infrastructure that have combined to drastically reduce power generation/transmission as well as fuel supplies in recent times.
Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed gave the warning in a statement issued by his special assistant on media, Segun Adeyemi.
The minister said the repeated attacks on oil and gas pipelines as well as the wilful shutdown of power facilities by protesters amounted to economic sabotage which no government would tolerate.
He noted that government was aware that due to its fight for transparency and accountability “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 said. The Minister therefore appealed to Nigerians to join hands with the government to check the activities of the unscrupulous and unpatriotic elements who have taken it upon themselves to continuously work against the interest of the people assuring that the power situation would get better.
