Godknows Igali

The Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Power, Godknows Igali has opened up on why many Nigerians are currently enjoying stable electricity. Igali credited the trend to a reduction in gas pipeline vandalism in the country.

He made the disclosure on Monday, August 31, 2015, while speaking with State House correspondents at the Presidential Villa in Abuja.

He said:

“The gas is now passing to the gas pipelines and I think that the government has been engaging the communities and the places where these gas infrastructures pass through.”

“We hope it will be sustained because, like I said, there is a conscious engagement and it’s redouble. Redouble means that there was effort and when there was effort and you put additional effort and additional effort, then, it means that you have redoubled your work and that is what is going on.”
