As part of Gov Nasir El-Rufai’s efforts to boost energy efficiency in Kaduna State, the government announced on Monday it’s plans to ban the sale of of high energy consuming bulbs.

Disclosing this to the media at the state capital, the state’s Commissioner for Budget and Planning, Muhammad Abdullahi said before the ban is in full effect, there would be a campaign all over the state next year for electricity consumers to switch to energy saving bulbs completely.

“We have already started moving from high-energy consuming bulbs to energy saving bulbs in ministries departments and agencies,” as he explained that the state would save N360 million from the exercise—which accounts for 30% of the amount spent on light bills and fuelling of generators annually by electricity consumers in the state.

The commissioner continued by saying that the strategy was an idea of Dr Abdulkarim Mayere, who came third in the ‘My Great Kaduna Competition’—- A competition organised by the state government in 2015 to source ideas from the people of the state on how to make Kaduna great again.

According to Abdullahi, the gov had since appointed Mayere as the General Manger of Kaduna Power Supply Company, a new company set up to ensure energy efficiency in the state.
