Speaking at the book launch of 100,000 solar Home System in Jangefe community in Jigawa State, he disclosed that the initiative was part of the Federal Government's plan to provide electricity to 25 million Nigerians through off-grid connections that intends to reach 5 million homes.
He further mentioned that the project that is to be financed with the sum of N140 billion, would be paid for by the beneficiaries. Adding that the finance programme will shoot private developers towards providing power to the households.
This is a commendable move by President Buhari's government towards ensuring that power is restored to areas that have been experiencing blackout for quite a while. Electricity has been a major challenge in Nigeria for long and if this plan by the FG works out, it will be a major success that will give birth to more, and hopefully a time will come when there will be 24/7 power supply in Nigeria.
Join the conversation. Do you think the Buhari's led government can deliver on this promise?
