13 January 2014, Lagos – The Chief Executive Officer, CEO, Oando Gas and Power, Mr. Bolaji Osunsanya, yesterday, said about 130 industrial customers had been connected to its gas pipeline grid for their electricity needs.
Osunsanya disclosed this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria in Lagos.
He also said the company had embarked on the expansion of its gas pipeline in Lagos to ensure steady supply of “clean, safe and environment friendly gas fuels.”
The target, he said, was to keep the industries running profitably.
The CEO disclosed that 14 new customers would be hooked to the company’s gas grid, once the expansion of the Ijora to Marina pipeline was completed.
“Illegal connection to electricity can also cause fire out-breaks. Lagos Island has the highest recorded cases of fire through illegal electricity installation. Such practice should be discouraged,” he said.
