Minister of power, Chief Adebayo Adelabu has warned saboteurs working against improvement in the nation’s power supply and vandalising power facilities to desist, saying his ministry has the support of President Bola Tinubu and the national security adviser (NSA), Nuhu Ribadu to deal with vandals and saboteurs.

Adelabu, who also decried the level of vandalism of Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) by nefarious saboteurs across the country, said the engineering and repositioning of the sector being embarked upon by the present administration was not exciting to the saboteurs who were making money from the menace.

The former deputy governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) stated this during inspection of the 46-year-old Ayede sub- regional station in Ibadan as part of his working visit, was received by the managing director of the TCN, Alhaja Abdulazeez Ahmed, the acting general manager, Ayede Distribution Sub Region, Engr. Akinkunmi Olukunmi, the managing director, chief executive officer, of Ibadan Electricity Distribution Company (IBEDC) Kingsley Achife, the general manager, Osogbo Region, Engr. Muhammad Ladan Yankuz, among others.

Adelabu charged the staff of the Ayede to support the President Bola Tinubu’s administration in its renewed hope agenda, as well as, expose anybody found in the habit of sabotaging the efforts of the power sector.

“We must live up to expectations. We will not relent until we achieve improvement in power supply. We are working with everyone to protect national assets. We are working with the NSA for adequate protection of power facilities. We can see the saboteurs at work.

“Some people are not happy that we are improving supply, but we cannot be intimidated. They will meet us there. We have the support of the president and the NSA to deal with saboteurs who are poised to vandalise the nation’s installations, destroying power distribution activities.

They are not happy about our efforts at repositioning the sector and delivering ourselves from their clutches because that is where they are making money. But we shall not relent. Let no one intimidate you.

‘’The rate of destruction going on in the northern part of the country is alarming. These installations being destroyed cost the Federal Government billions of naira to put in place. This is a fight we must fight jointly”, he said.(www.naija247news.com)
