The repeated attacks on oil and gas pipelines and the willful shutdown of power facilities by protesters amount to economic sabotage which no government will tolerate, Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, said in a statement reaching Xinhua.
Mohammed said the government is not unaware that as it steps up the fight against corruption, corruption will vigorously fight back in many forms, including the destruction/sabotage of key national infrastructure to make the government look bad.
He added that nothing will make this government to slow down in its anti-corruption fight and no one who is corrupt will be spared.
The minister appealed to citizens 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.
Mohammed said the power situation is gradually improving as generation has now increased to around 4,000 MW while the Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Ibe Kachikwu, has assured that the prevailing fuel queues will gradually ease in the next few days. Enditem
