The Nigeria’s Government says it is making efforts to deliver two units of 330 Kilo Volt (KV) power transmission substations in Katsina and Kano States, which are expected to be built along with the transmission lines to raise power supply to the states.

Transmission Company of Nigeria’s General Manager, Public Affairs, Ndidi Mbah said this in a statement in Abuja on Saturday.

Mbah said the Managing Director of TCN, Sule Abdulaziz, disclosed this while inspecting the 330/132/33kV Katsina Substation project and the Rimi Zakara Substation in Kano.

Speaking at the Katsina substation, Abdulaziz said the transformers and structures are already in place.

He said on completion, the substation would improve the transmission of bulk power supply to Daura, Dutsinma, Kankara and Malumfashi substations in Katsina.

“We are willing, and we want to ensure that we finish this substation within one year.

"We will also invite President Muhammadu Buhari to inagurate the substation,” he disclosed.

The TCN head said the transmission line that would bring bulk supply to the substation was from Kano and was earlier affected by Right of Way issues.

Abdulaziz said that TCN and the government were collaborating on this, adding that processes had been completed and the contractor would be back to site to finish his work so that the substation could be inaugurated.

According to him, the substation facility has two units of 150 Mega Volt Ampree (MVA) power transformers and two units of 60MVA power transformers.

The representative of the contractor of the Katsina project, Mustapha Maihajjo, lauded the current administration for fast tracking funding of the Katsina substation.

“Since the coming of this administration, we have been able to procure about 95 percent of all the equipment requirements for this project.

"Shipment of the materials were earlier delayed by COVID-19, but were now on ground", he said.
