Sokoto to build N3.8bn IPP –Graham
By Agency Reporter, Published: Saturday, 27 Feb 2010

Sokoto State is to build a 30-megawatts Independent Power Project at the cost of N3.8 billion.
Managing Director of the United States of America-based Vulcan Capital Energy Management, which won the contract for the project, Mr. Ford Graham, disclosed this on Wednesday at a stakeholders‘ forum organised by the state government in Sokoto.

Graham said that the state government had already paid 30 per cent of the total contract sum to his firm for the execution of the project, which was awarded in November 2008.

He said that his firm had commenced work on the project following the arrival in December 2009 of some of the equipment it ordered.

Graham blamed the delay in commencing work on the project to the delay in the acquisition of the site and in opening letters of credit.

Secretary to the State Government, Alhaji Sahabi Gada, commended the people for attending the forum and assured them that the power plants project would be completed before the end of the year.

    Im sure the project was delayed due to incompetance of Vulcan C. They have messed up every project they have started and know of only a few that have actually completed, in which none them was on time. All the others ended up in court .
