0

The Abuja Electricity Distribution Company (AEDC) and the Niger State Government have introduced initiative, “Light Up Niger 2024” to improve electricity supply to residents of the State.

AEDC said, the initiative would be a collaboration between it and the State government to ensure a steady power supply in the state

This was brought to the fore when the current Governor, Mohammed Bago received the AEDC delegation led by its Chief Operations Officer, Eng. Chijioke Okwuokenye at the Government House, Minna.

The Governor described the initiative as a welcome development because Niger State is host to four hydro dams and the dams contribute about 60% electricity in Nigeria.

He also observed that power supply is key to development especially as the State is moving into an industrialization and processing zone.

The Farmer Governor expressed optimism that the “Light Up Niger” project will also proffer solution to the metering challenge in the State.

Farmer Governor Umaru Bago disclosed that the Electricity Act has been domesticated in the State and the Niger State Electricity Regulatory Commission has been created.

He further stated that the necessary paperwork for the Regulatory Commission will soon be completed so that the State can start generating and distributing its own power.

The Chief Operating Officer of AEDC, Eng. Chijioke Okwuokenye explained that the “Light Up Niger” project when it takes off, will pave way for greater things to come as the whole scope is to come up with the best measures that will improve and sustain electricity supply to Niger State.

He commended the support of the Bago-led administration through the supply of transformers to communities saying that the private sector needs such support for survival and assured that the Company is willing to continue to partner with the State Government for the desired result.

Recently the State Government described as unacceptable the continuous erratic and epileptic power supply in the State. The situation improved immediately and has led to the “Light Up Niger” initiative.
