Abuja - The Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, has said the Federal Government had plans to distribute 6,000 megawatts of electricity in the country by the first quarter of 2016.

According to a release issued by Laolu Akande, the Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity to the Vice President, on Tuesday, Osinbajo said this at Kaleta, Guinea, on Monday at the inauguration of a 240 MW Hydro-power plant.

The event, where Osinbajo represented President Muhammadu Buhari, was part of the activities marking Guinea's 57th Independence anniversary taking place on October 2.

The Vice President commended the vision of the Guinean President, Prof. Alpha Conde, noting that the inauguration of the power plant was a 'monumental accomplishment' in a short time.

"It shows what can be done with commitment and vision," he added.

The 240 MW Hydro-power plant in Kaleta was built to serve mainly the people of Conakry, the nation's capital city.

The release noted that the event was witnessed by the Presidents of Congo and Niger, Denis Sassou Nguesso, and Mohamadou Issoufou, respectively.

It added that there were also representatives from the governments of China, France and the United Arab Emirates, among others.

The Vice President returned to Abuja after the ceremony.
