The Minister for Power, Works and Housing, Mr Babatunde Fashola, has identified major factors preventing Nigerians from enjoying uninterrupted and regular power supply, including vandalisation of power supply equipment, creating stumbling blocks in the way of power lines, blowing up of gas pipelines and litigations in courts over power projects are some issues the Minister listed.

Mr Fashola made the observation after inspecting the distribution sub power station in Pankshin, Plateau State, where equipment at the substation have been vandalised by hoodlums.

The Minister, who had earlier been conducted round the ongoing construction of an overhead bridge along Yakubu Gowon Way before proceeding to the sub-power distribution station where the act of vandalism has slowed down the pace of work and thus affected distribution of power, appealed to Nigerians to guard power installations in order to have regular and adequate power supply.

Fashola also warned Nigerians to desist from wasting the available energy, especially during the day.
