President Muhammadu Buhari has reiterated commitment to the rapid improvement of power supply across Nigeria. Buhari, who spoke at an audience with officials of CGGC, the Chinese Construction Company working on the Mambilla Power project, regretted that power generation in Nigeria had failed to keep pace with national needs over the years. He assured that his administration would ensure that the Mambilla project and other unfinished hydro-power projects in the country were completed expeditiously to boost power supply in the country.
The president said, “”I am 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”
