There is no gainsaying that power translates to every aspect of our life. The government will appreciate your contributions towards moving the power sector forward.
“The Mambilla project which has been on for 40 years is taking off on jet speed in a few weeks from now. In the same vein, the Kashimbila Project which is about the same size of Mambilla will be inaugurated in December by the grace of God
“By the time we inaugurate these two projects, I assure you that it the power situation in Nigeria will improve.”
