January 14, 2014 – President Jonathan Builds Solar Energy Powered Station In Abuja Village

Few months to the end of his tenure, the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Goodluck Ebele Jonathan has built a solar energy-powered station at a village in Abuja.

The Durumi community residents will now be enjoying 247 access to electricity courtesy of the oga at the top.

This was implemented under the light-up rural Nigeria, OLM Project.

Jonathan was joined with Power Minister Professor Chinedu Nebo, and the President of Schneider Electric Nigeria, Marcel Hochet to cut the tape this afternoon in Durumi area of Abuja.

    he s a shameless man , just in one city out many million of city in Nigeria, dis s a clear sign of laziness,incompetence,unfitness,stingyness,weak,and lack of good vision. What we need now is a fresh party with a fresh system. APC dats d way

    If u know anything about solar power, u will know that this setup can barely do anything but light up a small part of that village for a few hours.They will need 20 to 30 times more solar panels and batteries to make any sensible impact.

    What is the energy capacity of this solar plant? How many kilowatt or Megawatt? how much was the cost to build this plant?. How much energy can this plant generate in a year and how many communities or residence does this support and how many years are the panels guarantee for? Am asking all these questions to be sure that Nigeria is not taken for a fool!
