A population of more than 400,000 people is eager to receive stable and affordable electricity in Guinea’s second largest city, Nzérékoré, the Governor of Nzerekore has disclosed.
General Mohamed Ghare told the visiting General Manager of TRANSCO CLSG, Mohammed M. Sherif, who paid a courtesy call on his office Friday, January 8, 2021, that Nzerekore, being a commercial center in the southeast of the country can’t afford to remain in darkness or continue to struggle for power supply over the years.
The top Guinean official said the advent of the CLSG interconnection project to his region is a remarkable gift from the Almighty. “We are excited and eager to see lights in our streets and homes, hospitals and schools,” the Governor said.
Governor Ghare hailed ECOWAS for launching the Cote d’Ivoire, Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea interconnection project that will boost economic activities in the Mano River basin. “No development is achieved without the presence of reliable electricity, so the CLSG project will provide us the opportunity to development our country and boost serious economic activities here.”
The Guinean official furthered that the CLSG energy project will be affordable and will light up several households as well as neighborhoods including schools and hospitals to the delight of thousands of residents who are waiting patiently. He added that the CLSG project is building confidence in the business communities across the region.
The Government, accompanied by the Prefet of Nzerekore joined the General Manager of TRANSCO CLSG on tour of the Nzerekore substation where intensive civil works and other construction activities are ongoing.
