I am Very Interested In The Power Sector – Buhari

may have been receiving criticism from all cylinders due to the lukewarm approach he has adopted towards governing the nation, but credit must be given to him for his insights and foresight into how best can be restored.

We all know the importance of having a stable electricity in the entire nation, and it is not surprising that the president is taken keen interest in the sector.

Here is the press statement from the president stating his intentions, once again, for the power sector.

President Muhammadu reaffirmed Monday in Abuja that his administration will give the highest possible priority to the rapid improvement of power supply across Nigeria.

Speaking at an audience with officials of CGGC, the Chinese Construction Company working on the Mambilla Power , President Buhari said that it was quite regrettable that power generation in Nigeria had failed to keep pace with national needs over the years.

The President said that his administration will therefore ensure that the Mambilla project and other unfinished hydro-power projects in the country are completed expeditiously to boost power supply in the country.

“I am very much interested in Mambilla and other hydro-power projects, not only for the improvement of power but also for irrigation as both power and irrigation projects will help to improve the lives of Nigerians.

“I am going to ask for details of the Mambilla Hydro-Power Project and others. Very soon, we will get together and redefine the project agreements for faster results,’’ President Buhari said.

The Managing Director of CGGC, Mr. Zhang Heng, who led his company’s delegation, told the President that work on the Mambilla project was being delayed by the failure of previous administrations to provide the counterpart funding specified in the agreement with the Chinese government.

The CGGC delegation was accompanied to the Presidential Villa by Governor Abdulaziz Yari of Zamfara .
