FG To Boost Power Supply In North East
The federal government has restated its commitment to improving power supply to boost economic activities in the Northeast.
Mr Usman Gur, the Managing Director and Chief Executive of Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN), said this on Monday at the inauguration of 132/33 KV substation with 1×40 MVA transformer in Mayo-Belwa town, Adamawa.
He said the North/East had been experiencing low voltage in electricity supply, a situation he said the ongoing rehabilitation and extension projects of TCN would address.
“We are going to put 330 KVA transmissions in Jalingo, and this Mayo-Belwa substation will also be upgraded to 330KVA substation.
“The funding for that is already secured and the process for the project has gone a long way.
“The thing is that, we need to strengthen the economic activities of this side, as part of the efforts of government to ensure that the Northeast is secured and poverty reduced.
“And the best way for you to address poverty is to provide electricity,” Gur said.
