FROM KAYODE EKUNDAYO

Nigeria’s Minister of Power. Mamman Sale has announced that about 700MW from the Zungeru Hydroelectric Power plant will be injected into the nation’s national grid by December 2021.

Mamman in a series of tweets said: “I am excited to announce that we will be injecting about 700MW of electricity into the National grid by December 2021 from the Zungeru Plant barring any unforseen development”

“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.
