Minister of Interior calls for the establishment of ‘Power Rangers’ to protect power infrastructures

The Minister of Interior, Dr Olubunmi Tunji Ojo, has called for the establishment of “power rangers” to protect the nation’s Power Infrastructures against vandals.

The minister said this at the passing out parade of 350 personnel second batch of Mining Marshall at the NSCDC Complex Sauka, Abuja on Friday, June 14.

He expressed concern over the incessant att@cks on Power Infrastructure across the country by vandals and terr%rists, stressing that no nation would develop without adequate investment in the power sector.

“I will speak with my brother, the Minister of Power, the rate of vandalism, of economic terrorism going on with our transmission lines, have to be looked into.

It is your job to make sure that no critical asset of government is destroyed and we are ready and I believe NSCDC is up to the task,” he said.

Urging the Commandant General of the NSCDC to set up a squad that would tackle power vandals, Tunji-Ojo said, “The next time I come here, I want to see my Power Rangers, I mean people that will protect our distribution lines, people that will protect our Gencos people that will protect every power sector.

It is not reasonable, it’s not acceptable for a country like Nigeria to spend billions of dollars on power infrastructure all for it to be vandalized no country grows or develops without the power sector so NSCDC it is time for you to play your part.

I have decided that the solution towards you accomplishing your mandate is sectorisation of your responsibility.”
