Gombe urges FG to fast track Dadin-Kowa hydroelectric project
Gombe State Government on Thursday appealed to the Federal Government to fast-track work on the Dadin-Kowa hydroelectric power project, as earlier promised.
Hassan Ahmadu, State Commissioner for Rural Development, made the call in an interview in Gombe. It would be recalled that Chidi Izuwah, Ag Director-General, Infrastructure Concession Regulatory Commission, had given October 2018 as the completion period when he inspected the project in April.
Ahmadu assured that the completion of the project would reduce hardship faced by the people in the region, especially those who depend on electricity for their survival. According to him, completion of the project will also create employment opportunities and reduce rural-urban migration.
