My administration will give topmost priority to improving power supply - Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari has vowed that his administration will give topmost priority to the improvement of power supply in the country.

This was disclosed in a statement by his special adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adeshina who spoke while granting audience to official of the Chinese Construction Company (CGGC) working on the Mambilla Power project

According to the president aide, it was quite regrettable that power generation in Nigeria had failed to keep pace with national needs over the years.

To salvage the situation, Adesina has disclosed that President Buhari would ensure 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,” he said.
