Kano approves land for mega gas pipeline, hydro projects

The Kano State Government says it has provided land for the construction of a mega gas pipeline from Ajaokuta to Kano.

The Secretary to the State Government (SSG), Alhaji Usman Alhaji, said this on Wednesday in Kano while receiving a delegation from the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) which paid him a courtesy visit in his office.

He said the state government had also provided land for the construction of 135 megawatts hydro power project initiated by the state government as part of efforts to boost socio-economic activities in the state.

Alhaji said that the power project, when completed, would enable the state to compete with other states like Lagos and Ogun in terms of economic development.

He said that Kano State would continue to provide the necessary support and logistics for the successful execution of the two projects.
