I paid a visit to the Taraba State Government house today where I met with my Governor and brother His Excellency Arc. Darius Ishaku, we held discussions centered on how to speed up the final take-off of the Mambilla Hydroelectric Power Project and other power issues affecting the State.
I used the opportunity to inform him that the Ministry of Power is planning special projects that will enhance the electricity supply in Taraba state. I have since directed that a number of projects from the Rural Electrification Agency (REA) be executed in different parts of the State.
and as well as the supply of transformers to improve efficiency in Jalingo and other towns.
As part of effort to boost electricity to Taraba State, the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) is to upgrade the Jalingo transmission substation from the current 132kv to 330kv.
