200 Healthcare Centres And 104 Unity Schools To Benefit From FG’s Electrification Initiative


(AGENDAWATCHDOG) – The Federal Government has set out plans to make electricity available in 200 Primary Healthcare Centres, alongside all the 104 Unity Schools across the country.

This was disclosed by Sale Mamman, the Minister of Power, via series of tweets on his official handle, in which he explained that the mini-grid, which would be taken up by the Federal Ministry of Power, was also designed to provide solar-powered streetlights to the host communities of the healthcare centres and within the environment of the schools.

The programme which would be handled by the Rural Electrification Agency (REA), is part of the Federal Government’s plan to achieve 30 per cent renewable energy sources by 2030.

PROJECTED IMPACT: The electrification programme will revolutionise and ease the learning process in the unity schools, facilitate uninterrupted healthcare services to the rural communities, enhance the security arrangements around the schools, consequent to the recent spate of attacks by armed groups, create jobs and provide energy access to the unserved or underserved communities across all the geo-political zones in the country.
