Northern Governors Sign MOU For Construction Of 5 Solar Plants (pics) by ebosie11(f): 2:27pm On Nov 28, 2016
Northern Governors, General Electric sign MOU for 5 power plants

The Northern States Governors' Forum and the General Electric ‎International, on Monday signed a memoranda of understanding for the construction of five solar plants that aim at generating 500 megawatts of electricity in some parts of Northern Nigeria.

Borno State Governor and Chairman of the Northern States Governors ' Forum, Kashim Shettima signed the agreement on behalf of the ‎Governors while General Electric's Senior Executive, Western Europe and Africa, Mr Armand Pineda and the President/Chief Executive Officer, ‎General Electric, Nigeria, Dr Lazarus Angbazo signed on behalf of their company in a brief ceremony which held at Transcorp Hilton Hotel in Abuja.

Based on the MOU, the General Electric which has 120 years experience in power generation, is to build five solar power plants to be located in Borno, Kebbi, Nassarawa, Niger and Taraba States which each of the plants expected to generate 100 megawatts of electricity totaling 500 megawatts across the 5 States. The electricity is meant to stimulate economic activities and social services in the affected States through boosting agricultural food processing, small scale businesses in addition to supplying electricity to schools and hospitals.

The project which is a pilot phase, is being coordinated by the Northern Nigeria Global Economic Re-integrationProgramme, newly created by the Northern Governors to serve as vehicle for the economic recovery of northern States through international relations on infrastructure, manufacturing, stimulate agricultural value chain and trade and make the region a global payer agricultural export in line with the vision of late Premier of the Region.

The Governors Forum led by Governor Kashim Shettima, engaged the services of Malam Tanimu Yakubu Kurfi as Cheif Executive Officer of the Programme. Kurfi was Chief Economic Adviser to late President Umaru Musa Yar'adua and he has wide contact with leading development companies and financial institutions across the world.

"The 19 Governors of the north jointly created this approach. We want to go beyond lamentation to provide solutions and we all know that power is key to industrial development. With power, we can create jobs, stimulate our economies and make life better for our people. The General Electric has over 120 years experience in energy solutions and they have been operating in Nigeria for over 50 years, we cannot have a better partner than GE. We shall do our part as Governors, this I will assure you. We are deeply committed to this agreement" Governor Kashim Shettima said at the MOU signing ceremony.

The Northern Governors Chairman enumerated challenges of poverty, unemployment, poor access to education, poor healthcare amongst other underdevelopment indications threatening the north while concluding that the power can provide a vehicle for the north to reposition itself for a better future.

The CEO, Northern Nigeria Global Economic Re-Integration Programme, Tanimu Yakubu Kurfi said he took up the challenge ‎put forward by the Northern Governors as a result of strong passion and commitment to aggressive development of the north as so far shown by the Northern Governors since Governor Shettima became the forum's chairman in 2015.

Reaffirming their commitment to the MOU, General Electric's Senior Executive, Western Europe and Africa, Mr Armand Pineda and the President/Chief Executive Officer, ‎General Electric, Nigeria, Dr Lazarus Angbazo both pledged that they would work round the clock to realize the project for the benefits of citizens of the five States.

Nigeria is in a recession and is trying to diversify instead of the govt to focus funds on other things they are forcusing our scarce funds in the search for oil in the north.
Is it not obvious it was always a propaganda despite all the noise made about oil found in the north why is this same govt advocating to pipe oil from Niger republic to Nigeria why dont they pipe oil from the newly found fields in the north.
So the billions of dollars wasted in the search for oil is gone? Despite all the warnings?

You mean we should keep begging you to stop bombing and destroying your own land like we've been begging you with so many peace initiatives, more money, NDDC, amnesty and billions upon Nbillions of amnesty PAYMENTS?


No, they can not keep holding us to ransom or keep blackmailing us forever, they can blow up the whole of ND and drink whatever oil they have left, who cares?


What have they done with all their derivations, allocations, IGR, amnesty payments and so on?

Delta state is the most indebted country in Nigeria with N700 billion debt, but can you point to one thing they did with that money?

Oil is an international commodity and we can get it from anywhere and even oil is available in other peaceful and non violent parts of Nigeria or even from outside Nigeria.




Yes. They want Buhari to crawl on his belly from Abuja down to the creeks, lick the balls of the militants clean, convert to a Christian, resign, and the make Tompolo preesident for them to cease bombing.

Dem never see anything.

Let them run their region aground jor. Who cares.

While states in the the southwest and now North are alligning trying to draw from their strengths to pull their respective regions along,those in the Ssouth are still more interested in blowing up pipelines,individuals being awarded oil blocks to become overnight billionaires and militants given oil pipelines protection contracts while their govs are still more interested in how much they can loot and which judge the efcc or dss wants to arrest next,so that they can go and offer personal protection.
The southeast meanwhile is still undecided on whether to support Biafra or remain in "one nigeria".Meanwhile it has one of the best collection of entrepreneural minded indigenes who only need state/regional support,that forward thinking govs can together galvanize to pull its people/region thru.

But you know aarressa is right. They've been bombing for months. What have they achieved? You can't hold a whole country at ransom na. They'll get tired at a point in time. By then they'll realize Nigeria is bigger than them. If herdsmen wan do anyhow then we'll import cows.. Lol

My point is violence gets you nothing.

On point. I commend the move to look for alternatives and the strengthening of the other non-oil dependent sectors of the economy. We got farming on lock down, let's move on to power. Good news. Na small small.

P.s: If you are from the South West through the middle belt to the far north and you didn't key into agriculture last season, do not miss in 2017.

Good development. Elon Musk is also involved in Solar City in the US. The Future of Energy is going Solar. Meanwhile General Electric continue making money, una dey Naija like say una no dey.

Agriculture is revolutionizing Nigeria and will make plenty multi millionaires in the next 1 year. No matter the recession, people will still feed. A time of recession is a time of resetting. Stay ahead and take the first leap towards financial sustenance. Join ARMI today and be an Agricultural Entrepreneur (Agro-preneur).

stop deceiving yourself!


what do you need extra state for....so you can have one more governor, one more house of assembly one more set of commisioners and all the associated expenses and one more set of unpaid state workers?


what have we acheived with 36 states that we didn't acheive when we had just 12 except more poverty in the land? Which factories located to the new states? which jobs came to the new states except civil servants that can't be paid? You create more states and all your citizens run to Lagos.....free yourself from backward thinking.
