Another Dam On the Niger?

[Guardian] REPORTS that the authorities in Niger Republic are planning to construct a dam across the River Niger is a cause for worry among Nigerians given that the base load of Nigeria's power generation still remains the Kainji and Jebba dams on the same River Niger. Any attempt to erect a dam upstream in Niger Republic, therefore, would adversely affect the operation of the two hydro power stations in Nigeria which would worsen the power supply situation in Nigeria.
