While he restated concern over poor state of the pipeline network across the country, Kyari said his leadership was determined to restore sanity in the pipeline distribution chain.

“All the ongoing activities and engagements, with the support of Mr President around how to contain the issues of infractions on our pipelines, the actions of vandals which we have been getting the support of the Senate to make sure that something is done about it, to bring it to the barest minimum; so that oil pipelines are restored, so that we can continue to increase production, and the confidence of investors so that no one would produce oil when he is not sure of producing oil for the future market.” he said
