Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Mr Babatunde Fashola, on Thursday, attributed the recent attacks on gas pipelines in the Niger Delta region by militants to power failure in the country.
Fashola made this known while speaking on issues affecting the sector at the inaugural town hall forum called “The Podium,” with the theme: “Fixing Nigeria,” organised by the Kukah Centre.
He pointed out that the government of President Muhammadu Buhari could not continue to depend only on gas to provide power to Nigerians.
Fashola explained that the government had concluded plans on sustainable power development and supply strategy to tackle the power crisis.
According to him, the plan had been included in the roadmap for the sector, which are in three phases, the first phase incremental, second steady power and third, uninterrupted power supply.
