“Unfortunately, we were unable to deliver this project in December 2020 as planned due to the global pandemic which meant workers on site had to be away for the better part of last year. President Muhammadu Buhari is committed to completing all Inherited and initiated projects”, he stated
Estimated to cost $1.3 billion, Zungeru plant is the biggest hydro power plant in Nigeria under construction.
