HYPPADEC sinks solar boreholes in Plateau communities

The Hydroelectric Production Areas Development Commission (HYPPADEC) has commissioned solar boreholes in some LGAs of Plateau State.

The Chairman of HYPPADEC, Barr Joseph Irtaf, said the commission deemed it significant to embark on projects that would positively impact the rural communities.

He said this on Tuesday at the commissioning and handing over of the boreholes to the communities of Jebu and Miango in Bassa LGA.

He said, “HYPPADEC is doing its best at ensuring improvement in the living condition of communities within its working jurisdiction in the states within its scope. I am happy to witness the first HYPPADEC projects in Plateau State.”

The state’s Coordinator of HYPPADEC, Abubakar S. Tanko, said the commission had so far constructed 11 solar boreholes and built schools in some of villages in the state, adding that it had also empowered youths in various communities, aside the provision of other social amenities.

The Chairman of Bassa LGA, Hon Stephen Igmala, appreciated HYPPADEC, saying the communities “now have sources of clean water. We must appreciate HYPPADEC for assisting Bassa LGA by taking off the economic burden of constructing boreholes that will alleviate the suffering of the rural people.”

Igmala added that the commission had provided electricity and motorcycles to some youths in the LGA, but requested for more assistance.
