Abubakar Aliyu, Minister of Power, has announced that the 700 megawatt Zungeru Hydroelectric Power Project has been finished, emphasizing that the plant would soon be able to deliver power to the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN).

CNEEC and SINOHYDRO are building a $1.3 billion facility in Niger state, Nigeria, according to THISDAY.
It is the country’s second-largest hydroelectric power project, after the 760 megawatt (1,020,000 hp) Kainji hydroelectric power project.

According to Aliyu, the last time the Nigerian government completed a project like the Zungeru Hydroelectric Power Project was in the 1960s, and the massive investment in the Zungeru power plant is part of the federal government’s commitment to improve electricity supplies across the country.

Also speaking, the Governor of Niger state, Bello, commended President Muhammadu Buhari for the completion of the project.

AAN.
