He disclosed this while flagging off the construction of a 2 kilometer solar powered streetlights in Obi Local Government Area.

“I’m happy that I’m here today to actually start this project but my happiest day in Obi will come when I bring GE to come and use the coal deposits in Obi, with the four turbines that they are going to relocate from South Africa to this town, so that they can start generating the 1000 megawatts that will power the entire state,” Sule said.

The governor said the power generation project will not just provide services to the people of Obi but will also create a coal mine that will generate employment to youths in the state. (Daily Trust)
