Abuja - President Goodluck Jonathan has given approval for the the implementation of the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed between Nigeria and Power China for the generation of 20 000megawatts of electricity and the construction of 10 000Km transmission lines, reports The Nation.
Professor Chinedu Nebo, Minister of Power, disclosed this when a delegation from Power China led by its Vice-Chairman, Du Chunguo, paid him a courtesy call in his office in Abuja.
He said with the approval from the president, the next step is to take the projects in bits to ensure that other ancillary services like the transmission lines are built alongside the projects so as to ensure adequate provision for wheeling.
He said the government is fully committed to the projects as they are critical to the attainment of government’s target of enhanced generation capacity.
