JUST IN: Gov Zulum, Kyari perform groundbreaking ceremony of MEPP

The Group Managing Director (GMD), Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), Mallam Mele Kyari has joined the Governor of Borno State, Prof. Babagana Umara Zulum to perform the Groundbreaking Ceremony of the Maiduguri & Environs Emergency Power Project (MEPP).

The ceremony will officially mark the commencement of the construction of a 50-megawatt gas turbine power plant expected to generate electricity to the city of Maiduguri, Borno State, and environs.

The MEPP is a Federal Government intervention strategy in tackling the perpetual power outage in Maiduguri, caused mostly as a result of incessant vandalism of critical power infrastructure by insurgents.
