Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi has commended President Muhammadu Buhari for making the Hydroelectric Power Producing Areas Development Commission (HYPADEC) functional, 11 years after the promulgation of the Act establishing the commission.

Bello gave the commendation in Lokoja, when the Governing Council and management of the commission paid him a courtesy visit.

HYPADEC is specifically charged with the responsibility of managing the ecological menace, to operation of dams, and for related matters.

Bello, who was represented by his deputy, Edward Onoja, noted that the menace of flooding and how it was affecting the states’ agricultural activities, which is the mainstay of their economies, cannot be over-emphasised.

Speaking earlier, Mr Joseph Ityav, Chairman of the Governing Council of HYPADEC, said the commission was saddled with the responsibility of formulating policies and guidelines for the development of hydroelectric power projects in communities devastated by effects of the location of dams.
