The House of Representatives yesterday called for the completion of 7,000 megawatt electricity project agreement entered into by the Federal Government and the German company, Siemens.
The call was made at the end of the two-day investigative hearing conducted by the House Adhoc Committee on Power Sector Reform.
- Buhari approves funding for 25,000MW Siemens power project
- Siemens trains graduates on engineering, field service operations
The chairman of the committee and House Leader Alhassan Ado Doguwa, asked the Bureau of Public Enterprises to ensure the electricity project was completed by the German power company.
BPE Director-General Alex Okoh said significant progress was being made on the power project deal and that it was slated for completion by December 2021.
The committee alleged that the privatization of the defunct National Electric Power Authority and the unbundling of the Power Holding Company of Nigeria had failed to address the challenges in the sector.
Meanwhile, the committee summoned the Central Bank of Nigeria Governor Godwin Emefiele and the Accountant-General of the Federation Ahmed Idris over issues in the sector.
