Over 50 Villages in Plateau State Soon to be Connected to Electricity

It might sound unbelievable, but it is the truth; to think that the number of villages within a single state that are yet to be connected to electricity are more that fifty!

This was made know by the Principal Manager of the Zaria Road Transmission Station, Mr. Thomas Duniya. According to him, over 50 villages in Plateau State will soon begin to get stable electricity supply with the completion of the Makeri 50 mega watts substation in Jos, even as the Minister of Information, Labaran Maku, assured Nigerians that as from next year the country will begin to enjoy stable electricity supply.

Addressing the National Good Governance Tour team led by the minister who visited the new substation, Duniya, revealed that once the two by 60 MDE substation was commissioned and other modalities completed, villages mostly located around the Jos South Local Government Area would begin to enjoy electricity supply.

He also revealed that another substation of two by 40 MDA had also been completed in Pankshin, which would hook up with the Zaria substation, explaining that PHCN was waiting for the state government to hook up with the rural areas sovthat they could take more load from the newly constructed substation to supply the southern part of the state. He said the Pankshin substation would supply the southern part of the state including Shendam.
