Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola says he received reports on plans emanating from secret meetings of some electricity Generation Companies to disrupt power supply for political gains.
Fashola who gave the hint at the twenty fifth Monthly Power Sector meeting in Uyo, said the power firms had sued the Federal Government for discriminatory treatment against them and the gas suppliers.
He alleged that the power firms by dragging the federal government to court over its regulation at a time of increase in power supply, is an indication of the intention of the plaintiff, to blackmail the government and hold the citizenry hostage.
The Senior Advocate of Nigeria vowed to defend government’s position in the law court, and urged the plaintiff to be fair in good conscience to the court of law and court of public opinion.
