Very commendable but they are a lot of solar projects in development across Africa that is a lot bigger than this.
Stop overstating the project

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has stated that Solar Power Projects commissioned under the Energizing Education Programme is a testament to the fulfillment of the Next Level agenda, of President Muhammadu Buhari.

Prof. Osinbajo said this recently in Kano State, where he commissioned the 7.1MW Solar Hybrid Power Plant, at Bayero University Kano, which is the largest off-grid solar hybrid power plant in Africa.

According to him, this is the second Solar Plant to be commissioned within one month. He, therefore, reiterated the government’s commitment to powering Nigeria – one university, one market, one community at a time.”

He revealed that the installed 7.1MW decentralized Solar Hybrid Power Plant will supply power to over 58,000 students and staff.

The Vice President further emphasized that, the ultimate goal of the Buhari administration’s Next level roadmap policies and objectives under the Energizing Education Programme, is to increase access to modern technical education in safe and illuminated learning environments, empower the girl child, and create jobs in the power sector value chain, amongst others.

He added that this project would create 182 energy related jobs from power system engineers to electricians as well as train 20 young female Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) students with the skills to contribute to strengthening our energy sector.

He said, “This significant initiative upholds the Federal Government’s adherence to global best practice, as we transition to cleaner sources of energy in line with the Paris Agreement on Climate Change. These projects being implemented by the Rural Electrification Agency (REA) are strategic to fulfilling our commitments to the Agreement as they strive to reduce Nigeria’s carbon footprint.

“The leveraging of renewable energy technologies is in line with the Federal Government mandate and related activities. Nigeria’s plan to reduce carbon emissions by 20% unconditionally and 45% with international support by 2030 aims to limit the damaging effects of climate change.

“This remarkable off-grid solar hybrid power plant being commissioned today is already on its way to bringing these goals and objectives to fruition.”

The Noor solar complex in Morocco produces 51 MW of power and its one of the biggest in the world....We comission a couple of chinese imported solar panels that generates slighlty more than 1MW and we call it the biggest in Africa.

Why are Nigerians quick to call projects biggest/Largest or Worlds first.

You guys are wrong

Op didn't state it well

Kano's is the largest off grid solar power plant

Google largest off grid solar power plant in Africa

Off grid meaning that it only powers a certain area for the areas certain purpose but its not in the national grid

That installation although being impressive for a country like Nigeria, is not the largest in Africa.

Just use Google and see...try it.

I surprise o, 7.1Mwatt, largest in africa.

7.1Mwatt is child play, its like a drop of water in the ocean when you compare it to what we need in this country.
Nigeria need to generate above 40,000 Mwatt for stable electricity.
Secondly this is not the largest in africa.

I think such project even bigger ones should be all over northern Nigeria because they seem to experience more sunlight than us down south.
At least the north should be useful for something.
