Faal said this at an interactive session with newsmen at its first regional office in Abuja on Thursday.The AfDB Chief disclosed that a solar power project in Jigawa State with a cost of about $200 million as well as a 56 megawatts solar project in Sokoto valued at $100 million are to be executed. “The biggest project that we are working on in the power space this year is called the Qua – Iboe Power project in AkwaIbom and that’s a 540 megawatts power project (about $900 million”).He said the essence was to supplement the generation of more power that would allow the bank to have additional sources to support both the building and the premise.
