There is a company called Ajaokuta-Kaduna-Kano Gas Pipeline Project (AKK). NNPC just claimed that this company can help to solve Nigeria’s electricity problems.
The project is still in the works, as it is expected to be completed by the first quarter of next year. This will allow for more benefits, such as industrial development, and more job creation, and it will also deepen the local gas market.
However, this project will more than serve Nigerians. It will serve key areas of Africa and some parts of Europe.
To assure Nigerians that it will succeed, the advocates behind the project said it has been in the plans for some 30 years. It is expected that it will deliver at least two billion standard cubic feet of gas to the domestic market. There will also be opportunities to increase the supply.
AKK will be expected to “debottleneck” the gas supply network in Nigeria.
Let’s hope this will better the lives of Nigerians.
