Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has lauded an integrated waste management project of the Kano State government which will transform waste to power, organic fertilizer, and other uses.
He spoke on the Public-Private Partnership project during a visit on Monday to the Presidential Villa, Abuja, by a delegation led by Governor Abdullahi Ganduje and officials of Capegate, a private environmental services provider.

The Kano State Governor mentioned that the State had signed a 20-year concession agreement with the company for waste collection, waste transportation, sorting, and processing to produce electricity and organic fertilizer, among others.
Governor Ganduje said the state government was encouraged to embark on the project because of the track record of the private sector investor (Capegate Investment Company Limited) which includes over three decades of experience in waste management, sanitation, recycling technologies, and renewable energy.
He solicited the support of the federal government in the actualization of the project aimed at creating wealth and ensuring a cleaner and sustainable environment.
