The Minister of State for Power, Goddy Jedy-Agba has cautioned against the vandalism of power infrastructure in order not to frustrate the government’s efforts in providing uninterrupted power supply.
Agba gave the warning during a tour of facilities at the Azura Power Plant in Ihovbor Village, Edo State.
He also assured Nigerians of good power supply during and after the festive season.
“Azura is working to make power available to Nigeria. The power sector is improving gradually. Power supply is now better.
“Although electricity union recently embarked on strike, which led to the power sector shutting down operations last week, it took us less than 18 hours to get them back to work after negotiation.
“Power is stabilising and I am sure we’ll do better. Government, distribution companies (Discos) and other stakeholders in the power sector are collaborating to ensure that Nigerians will have stable electricity throughout the Christmas season and beyond,” Agba stated.
