More action, less talk on Mambilla hydro project

The assurance given by President Muhammadu Buhari recently that his administration will accord the highest priority to the completion of the Mambilla Hydropower Project has given hope that the jinx that has bedevilled this all-important project for three decades is about to be broken, at last. Speaking when he received in audience officials of a Chinese construction company, President Buhari promised to ensure that the Mambilla project and other uncompleted or abandoned hydro-power projects in the country are completed expeditiously in order to boost power supply in the country. He said “I am going to ask for details of the Mambilla Hydro-Power Project and others. Very soon we will get together and redefine the project agreements for faster results.’’
