The Minister of Power Abubakar Aliyu has stated that power supply will soon be restored to Maiduguri, the Borno State capital.
He made this known when the Vice-Chancellor of the Borno State University Prof. Umar Kyari Sandabe led his management team on a visit to the minister in Abuja yesterday.
Chronicling the operations of the Nigeria Electricity Supply Industry (NESI), Abubakar said efforts are being made to restore power to Maiduguri.
This is expected to be concluded in about six weeks’ time. He said Independent Power Plants projects are being handled through the policy on off-grid and mini-grid. He said further that the mini-grid will adequately cater for all renewables.
