The Manufacturers Association of Nigeria (MAN) has announced its decision to terminate the pursuit of an Independent Power Project (IPP), which it embarked upon about three years ago. The project should have been completed this year if it was carried out as planned. President of the association, Chief Kola Jamodu, told journalists in Lagos, at the presentation of Blueprint for the Accelerated Development of Manufacturing in Nigeria that the association would no longer continue the project due to logistic challenges.
According to him, it will be difficult for the association to distribute the power generated to all its members across the country. “We are encouraging members to build their own power plants. With all hands on deck, patience and consistency, we will achieve sufficient power generation and distribution in the country”, he said.
