The Kebbi State Government on Wednesday pledged to facilitate the completion of all World Bank-financed projects in the state.

The Kebbi Governor, Alhaji Atiku Bagudu, made the pledge in Birnin Kebbi when he received officials of the state Ministry of Lands and Housing in his office.

"We will do our best to ensure all the projects are completed with maximum cooperation and support for the betterment of our people, " he said.

The governor commended the World Bank and other donors for supporting the state in every way.

Speaking earlier, the state Surveyor-General, Alhaji Musa Koko, told the governor that work toward an additional National Grid line of 330 kv by Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) had commenced, to augment the existing one from Kainji.

Koko said the new line would start from Birnin Kebbi sub-station through Niger Republic, Benin Republic, Togo to Burkina Faso.

"The distance of the project is 880 km and it is being funded by the World Bank and African Development Bank, " he said.

The Federal Government is collaborating with three West African countries as well as the West African Power Pool (WAPP), World Bank and African Development Bank (ADB) on the project.

The collaboration has kicked off Social Impact Assessment for the construction of a high voltage electrical transmission line over a distance of 880 km across the four countries.
