Despite the daily outcry from Nigerians in the country over lack of power supply, Nigeria government still wants to connect another nation to its power grid.
It is not a bad idea helping a nation that is struggling with any infrastructure development but knowing your citizens are suffering of such is quite terrible.
The agreement is making progress after Chad Minister of Energy, Mrs Ramatou Houtouin flew into Abuja in furtherance of the expected deal as talk with top officials of the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) continues.
The call for help came months ago after Chadian ambassador to Nigeria, Abakar Chachaimi, had asked for his country to be connected to Nigeria’s electricity grid during a visit to the Minister of Power, Mr. Sale Mamman in Abuja.
According to Chachaimi, connecting Chad to Nigeria’s electricity grid would further enhance the historical and economic collaborations between both countries.
