Governor Simon Lalong of Plateau state has declared that with the decision by a multinational firm, CT Cosmos Nigeria Ltd to set up a massive power generation project of over $150 million in his state, “Plateau will soon become a centre of attraction for power generation.”
Lalong, who received the MD/CEO of the firm, Chief Philip Chukwuike, and his management staff in his office, noted that “with the protracted power generation problems we have in Nigeria, to have over 70 megawatt generated on the Plateau is not a joke.”
Throwing his weight behind the project and urging the Federal Government to expedite action in giving the necessary support, the Governor said the many advantages that accrue to the state cannot be overemphasized, adding that aside having additional power supply, our youths will be employed and revenue will be generated for the state.
Speaking Earlier, Chukwuike, who was with two of his management staff, Mr. Henry Opara and Prince Shegun Ayodele, reassured that “within the next few months Nigeria will witness revolution in electricity generation which will start from Panyam in Plateau State.”
