The Minister of Works, Power and Housing, Mr Babatunde Fashola, on Sunday said that work would begin this year on the 40 megawatts Kashimbila Hydro Power Plant in Taraba, Daily Trust reports.
Fashola said this while speaking with newsmen in Maiduguri after a tour of projects in the North East. He said government was equally making efforts to complete the Mambilla Power Station, also in Taraba.
He said; “As for the Mambilla plant, the contractor is back to site after he was mobilised. But he has lots of challenges; he has to open letter of credit and import equipment, among other things.”
“For Kashimbilla project, we have made progress in terms of project planning. We are in the final stage of pricing and we expect that we will start work this year,’’ Fashola added.
