Northern Governors To Develop Solar Energy In The Region, Call For State Police
The Northern Governors Forum says it will develop solar energy in the region, following its comparative advantage of sunlight.
The forum unanimously resolved that 2000 megawatts of solar power would be harvested across its 19 States and the Federal Capital Territory, to harness its huge potential of power from solar.
The chairman of the forum and Governor of Plateau, Mr Simon Lalong in a statement by his spokesperson on Tuesday in Jos, said the resolutions were reached at a joint meeting with the Northern Traditional Rulers Council.
In a communique at end of
the meeting, Lalong said the forum and traditional rulers reviewed the security challenges in the north and called for the establishment of State Police.
According to him, this will effectively and efficiently address the security challenges of the region.
