Inherited 30 NIPP transmission projects, 70 new distribution schemes delivered— NDPHC

The Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer, Niger Delta Power Holding Company Limited (NDPHC), Mr Chiedu Ugbo has revealed that contrary to claims in some quarters that current administration has not done any reasonable project on power, “Between May 2015 and now, under the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari, about 30 NIPP transmission projects inherited by the administration have been completed while over 70 distribution projects have also been completed across the six geo political zones of the country.”

Explaining more at the inauguration of a 2x60MVA, 132/33kV substation and associated 132kV transmission lines constructed by the company in Abeokuta, Ogun State, he said eight of the 10 power plants in the National Integrated Power Project portfolio had been connected to the national grid.

Ugbo added that the Awka 2X60MVA 132/33kV Substation in Anambra State and Adiabo 2X60MVA 132/33kV Substation in Cross River State would be inaugurated in the next few months.

According to him, “We shall also in the same period be commissioning major distribution injection substations at Misau and Darazu in Bauchi State, Kumo in Gombe State and Agaye in Niger State.”
