The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) has revealed its plan to set up a gas power plant in Borno State within a short period of time.
On Friday, April 9, during a visit of Mele Kyari, Group Managing Director (GMD) of NNPC to Governor Babagana Zulum , he said:
“We think it’s very possible to establish a dedicated plant in Maiduguri which will serve the current needs and potentially supply power to other neighbouring cities and even countries.
“We are seeing a very short time frame; between three to four months, we should be able to put up a power plant that will serve Borno.”
Thanking NNPC on the other hand is Governor Zulum who appreciated the Company for its humanitarian services towards the State.
“Today’s event will change the narrative in our state as power is very essential in reducing the magnitude of poverty caused by insurgency in the state.”
