The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the new injection substations were constructed under the National Integrated Power Project (NIPP) to improve electricity supply in Kano State.

The Managing Director of NDPHC, Mr James Olotu, who handed over the projects at Challawa injection substation, Kano, said the projects would ensure efficient service delivery.

Olotu said government would continue to partner with private sector to ensure effective power supply in the country.

“With the private sector coming in, we hope to see a lot of improvement in the supply of power in the country.

He commended stakeholders’ effort to ensure the success of the privatisation programme of the power sector.

He also commended  the state government for providing land for the projects, saying the gesture would improve power supply in the state.

Responding, the Managing Director, Kano Electricity Distribution Company, Dr Jamil Gwamna, commended the Federal Government for its effort to sanitise the power sector.

Gwamna called for more private sector intervention in Kano State considering its population and the large number of industries in the state.

“We hope we will continue to have intervention for the next five years. We need extra capital to revamp the facilities to enable people enjoy a world class service.

“What I need is power and without power, I cannot supply,’’ he added.

NAN reports that the newly established injection substations were located at Rijiyar Zaki, PRP  Area, Farm Centre, Radio Kano, Challawa, Dakata and Wudil. (NAN)
