Abuja - The federal government has denied signing any agreement with the Democratic Republic of Congo to import electricity from the country, reports Vanguard.
Prof. Chinedu Nebo, Minister of Power, said the Grand Inga dam project in the Democratic Republic of Congo, which the African Union is interested in developing will link the entire continent for easy power purchase and sale across countries.
He said with other African countries buying into the project, Nigeria has to position itself to reap from the power expected from the Inga Dam.
He noted that Federal Government’s interest in the 40 000mw dam is a plan for the future, which ensures that Nigeria is not left out of the benefits of the mega project.
