FG`ll rehabilitate strategic roads, says Fashola

Fashola made the comment on Wednesday, May 18, 2016 at a forum organised by the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja.

“The only reason I announced 5,000 this year that we have reached this bus-stop; because I was already heading to another bus-top, until we had the outages and blow up at the Chevron platform,” he said according to The Cable.

“Just as we were hoping that will soon be completed and we will get back on, that took us back to 3000. Then we were looking at ways to bypass and evacuate our condensates, so that we can get more gas, we had reached about 3,800.

“Then they hit again the Chevron pipeline in Escravos, the oil platform and also now the gas pipeline, the Excravos Lagos pipeline system, deliberate sabotage, took us down to 2,500 megawatts,” he added.
