The Delta State Government has assured serious minded investors that it would continue to partner with them in other to bring meaningful development to the State in line with the SMART agenda of His Excellency Senator Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa.
The Commissioner for Energy Delta State Barr Newworld Safugha made this known during the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding between the Delta State Government and Bastanchury Power Solutions Nigeria Limited for the Establishment of 8.5 Mega Watts Embedded Power Plant in Asaba to power state owned facilities and Infrastructures.
Barr Safugha who expressed joy over the project said it came at a time when there was serious challenge in power generation in the country especially in the state capital, Asaba and the additional 8.5 Mega Watts that would be generated by Bastanchury Power Solutions for Government Facilities and Infrastructures would free up what is consumed by the Government Facilities and Infrastructures which can be distributed amongst other consumers of power in the State which ultimately would improve the power situation in the State Capital.
The Commissioner said the Ministry of Energy would continue to liaise with BEDC to ensure that they live up to their responsibility in providing constant power supply to Electricity consumers in the state.
Barr Safugha thanked the Governor, Senator Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa, for his moral support in ensuring that the project became a reality and assured Deltans that his Ministry would continue to conceptualize people oriented project that would be beneficial to the state in line with the state government’s vision of prosperity for all Deltans as encapsulated in the SMART agenda of His Excellency Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa.
The Chairman of Bastanchury Power Solutions Nigeria Limited Mr. Goziem Chidi thanked the State Government for giving his company the opportunity to show case their potentials and promised that his organization would fully meet all the terms of agreement in the MOU signed.
