Minister of Power, Works and Housing Babatunde Fashola says the challenges bedeviling the power sector are man-made.
He urged Nigerians to assist the ministry in its drive towards rescuing the power sector from saboteurs.
The minister was speaking as a guest lecturer at an event organised by the Department of Economics, University of Lagos, themed: ”The Power Sector Reform in Nigeria; Challenges and the Way Forward.”
Fashola said there was no mystery in achieving stable and reliable electricity supply but that all stakeholders must conform to guidelines of the sector’s roadmap.
According to him, attacks on gas pipelines; kidnapping of expatriates working on power sustainability; and procedures and inefficiencies in power transmission and distribution were among the challenges facing the sector.
He also cited sabotage in governance; non-payment of tariff, poor investment, among others, as other challenges frustrating the power sector.topics from
