Jalingo — Governor Darius Ishaku of Taraba State has expressed appreciation to President Muhammadu Buhari and the Federal Executive Council for approving funds for the execution of the Mambilla Hyro-power Project which is located in the state.

Darius, in a press statement signed by his Senior Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr Bala Dan Abu said approval of funds for the execution of the long awaited and highly valued project was an immense demonstration of Buhari's political will to the state.

He said it was highly important to note that the landmark decision on the project was taken at the very first Federal Executive Council meeting the president presided over after his return from treatment abroad

"It is a historic step, one that many past federal administrations were unable to take in more than 40 years," Ishaku stated.

He said people of Taraba State and indeed, Nigerians in general will forever remember the administration of Muhammadu Buhari for taking this crucial step towards the actualisation of one of the biggest hydro dam projects in Africa.
