FG Supporting Private Developers To Provide Electricity – Osinbajo

Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo says the Federal Government is currently supporting private developers to provide electricity through solar energy.

He disclosed this in a statement issued in Abuja by the Head, Communications and Public Relations, Niger Delta Power Holding Company, Olufunke Nwankwo.

The NDPHC said Osinbajo spoke at the recent inauguration of the 100,000 Solar Home System in Jangefe community, Jigawa State.

The vice president says the government is determined to bring power to un-served communities as part of the Nigerian Economic Sustainability Plan.

Osinbajo explained that the N140bn finance programme would support private developers to provide power to the households.

He says the NDPHC had been an important catalyst for off-grid solar systems, as the firm was the first to inaugurate the 100,000 systems in several states of the federation.

The Managing Director, NDPHC, Chiedu Ugbo, said the company has already provided 20,000 units of solar home systems to households across the country.
