ABUJA, (CAJ News) – THE Nigeria Government, in line with the 2016 Budget, is determined to reduce the ever increasing numbers of abandoned projects nationwide, Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, said.

As such, he is confident the Kashimbila Hydro Power Project in Taraba State would be completed in 2018.

He said the 40MW plant would not suffer neglect again.

Fashola pledged government would ensure the timely release of funds within the next two budget cycles.

After recently undertaking a working visit to the project site located in Takum Local Government Area, said that the spot visit afforded him the opportunity to take stock of progress made. He promised to ensure full realisation of the project within the new time-frame set for its completion.

“Government must deliberately complete on-going projects rather than inaugurating new ones,” Fashola said. – CAJ News
