President Muhammadu Buhari has expressed regrets that previous administrations failed to honour agreements between Nigeria and China in the completion of outstanding joint projects, including the 4,000 megawatts Mambilla Hydro-Electric Power Project.
This came on a day Vice President Yemi Osinbajo said Federal Government was set to spearhead investment in solar technology, both at utility scale and solar-to-home solutions.
Buhari said his administration was keen on completing the Mambilla project and would abide by the pacts entered into by the previous regimes.
Speaking at a meeting with Mr. Li Keqiang, the Premier of the State Council of the Peoples Republic of China yesterday, the President said that in the shortest possible time, all joint power, rail, road and aviation projects would begin to directly and quickly improve the lives of Nigerians.
President Buhari said he was particularly keen on actualising the Mambilla Power Project because of its huge potentialities to boost economic growth.
