Oshiomhole announces construction of 450 megawatt power plant in Edo State

Governor Adams Oshiomhole of Edo State has announced that a private company is building a 450-megawatt power plant in the state, which will be completed in the next 1 to 2 years. 

The governor made this announcement when the Chinese Consul-General in Nigeria, Liu Khan paid him a visit in bid to explore investment opportunities China can take advantage of in Edo State. Oshiomhole said;

Recently, a private company, Azura Power Plant, has commenced the process of laying about 450 megawatts of power which will be completed in the next one or two years, and the construction is still on

That’s a nice one, but I hope the power plant is a coal based one. This is because the gas power plants are finding it difficult to get gas supplies to power them, and that is one of the 2 biggest causes of the electricity problem we face in Nigeria.
