In his speech, the governor appreciates the Federal government’s commitments towards improving of electricity and then pleaded for the completion of Rimi windmill power plant.
He said: “Even though we note the commitment of the present Administration under the able leadership of His Excellency, President Muhammadu Buhari GCFR, to improve the supply of Electricity, part of the major problems facing the Small, Medium and Large Industries in Katsina State are inadequate supply of electricity and high cost of diesel to power generators.”
“I therefore wish to seize the opportunity of Your Excellency’s esteemed presence in our midst to call on the Federal Government to urgently complete the 10MW Windmill Power Project at Lambar Rimi in Rimi Local Government Area of Katsina State. The project when completed will no doubt increase the supply of electricity to Katsina State thereby bringing succor to entrepreneurs across the State as at present the project has reached 90% completion stage before it was abandoned.”
