The Bichi Emirate council in Kano state has pledged to Partner with Private Organizations with aim of providing available Solar Power to some parts of the Emirate.
This was disclosed by the Emir of Bichi, HRH Alhaji Nasir Ado Bayero OFR while commissioning a Solar Power Station at Yal’lami Village in Bichi Local Government Area constructed by the Emirate in collaboration with Sand Stream Nigeria limited worth millions of Naira.
The Emir said solar energy was initiated by world technologies to provide energy for less dependence on cooking gas to reduce environmental pollution, climate change, and desertification.
He said the project was part of efforts by the Emirate to provide a conducive atmosphere for the people of the Emirate which is why the Emirate partnered with the company to establish the Yal’lami Solar Power Station for the benefit of the people in the domain and their Neighbours.
The Emir then reaffirmed that the Emirate would not relent in its efforts in providing power energy but more would be done in education, health, modern Agriculture, and entrepreneur programs to enable the people of the Emirate to become self-dependent.
Alhaji Nasir Ado Bayero hopes that the new solar power station at Yal’lami village will assist in boosting small-scale industries in the area and promoting the socio-economic activities of people in the area and urged them to use it judiciously.
