The government of Yobe State last weekend in Damaturu, the state capital, completed 133 Rural Electrification Board (REB) projects for over three dozens housing estates and communities.
REB’s General Manager, Umara Mustapha Goniri, said 27 other electrification projects are to be completed by end of this year to boost power supply and the state’s economy.
In case you missed these:
“These are the modest achievements made in the power sector to mark the three-year administration of Governor Mai Mala Buni in the state”, he said.
In sustaining the projects, Goniri explained that additional transformer substations and adjustment of township distribution networks were installed in each of the housing estates in the 17 local councils.
While revealing that the estates were sited in Damaturu, Dikumari, Potiskum, Gashua, Dazigau NYSC camp and Buni-Yadi, he added that there were re-electrifications and upgrade at Government Science and Technical Colleges at Jajimaji, Nguru and Geidam, a border community with Niger.
