The Federal Government, Wednesday, disclosed moves to complete Farin Ruwa dam project in Nasarawa State, including generation of 20 megawatts of electricity from it when completed.
This was made known by the Permanent Secretary in the Federal Ministry of Water Resources, Dr Musa Ibrahim, during a meeting with a delegation of Nasarawa State Government in his office, led by the Commissioner for Water Resources and Rural Development, Orthm Akaaka.
According to Musa the project was conceptualized in 2001 with the intention of providing about 20 megawatts of power to Nasarawa State. However, he said the project was stalled due to inadequate funding for its completion by previous administrations.
He said that the dam is part of the listed projects of the Federal Ministry of Water Resources that has been captured in the 2018 Budget, so there was no cause for alarm as funds would be made available for the commencement and completion of the project.
