The Minister for Power, Engineer Abubakar Aliyu, who made the pledge Saturday while inspecting the projects, said his visit followed requests made on the project by the Katsina State Government and the Katsina Elders Forum when they visited him in Abuja.
The minister promised to meet the contractors and the consultants supervising the projects to address their concerns which included the provision of outstanding infrastructures such as power generators.
The minister said the project required 330 KV lines drawn from Kano which was already at about 50 per cent.
