The Minister of Power, Engr. Saleh Mamman, has assured Nigerians that the Muhammadu Buhari Next Level Administration, would deliver uninterrupted power supply when all major power projects are completed, before the end of its tenure.
He stated this after the inspection of the 215 MW Kaduna Power Plant, 132/33KV Kudenda Substation and Mando transmission line, in Kaduna recently.
Engr. Saleh Mamman, who was accompanied by the Minister of State, Mr. Goddy Jedy -Agba, OFR, said aside from increasing generation capacity, the Kudenda Substation would be providing voltage support to Kaduna, Kano, and Jos, which would improve the quality of electricity distributed to the public.
Mamman who expressed satisfaction with the level and quality of work done on the projects, warned contractors against any delay in the completion of the projects.
“We are here to inspect the level of work done on the project and I can tell you that I am very sure Nigerians, particularly those in Kaduna, Kano, Jos and environs, will begin to enjoy not only stable but quality power supply when these projects are fully completed and put to use “, he added.
The Minister of State, Jeddy -Agba said they were taking stock of the progress of all power projects across the country, stressing the Administration’s commitment to ensuring that all projects were delivered according to the contracts’ timelines.
The Ministers noted that the Kaduna Power project which is 95 percent completed, would reduce power outage and reduce system losses, thereby increasing economic and social activities in Kaduna.
The project would harness power generation from Kaduna Power Plant, Gurara Hydro Power Plant and the Mando Grid at 135 KV, to supply industrial and domestic consumers of Kaduna from the 132/33KV Kudenda Substation.
