Kaduna, Taraba, and Two More States Unite with HYPPADEC

The Hydroelectric Power Producing Areas Development Commission has enlisted Kaduna, Nasarawa, Taraba, and Gombe states into its membership.

The Hydroelectric Power Producing Areas Development Commission (HYPPADEC) has expanded its membership by including the states of Kaduna, Nasarawa, Taraba, and Gombe. This significant development was announced by the Managing Director of the commission, Abubakar Yelwa, during a five-day capacity-building workshop held in Kaduna State.

The objective of the training workshop included the enhancement of participants’ skills and knowledge of the global best practices for community engagement. The theme was ‘Social Standard Knowledge, Skills, and Attitudes Necessary for Effective Community Engagement and Sustainable Rural Development’.

The aim of the workshop was to improve the skills and knowledge of the participants regarding the best practices for community engagement. The theme of the workshop focused on enhancing their understanding of social standards and the importance of effective community engagement for sustainable rural development.

According to the HYPPADEC chief executive officer, the admission of the four states into the membership of the commission followed President Bola Tinubu’s recent assent to the New Electricity Act.

Yelwa explained that with the addition of four states into HYPPADEC, the number of its members increases to 10, comprised of over 1,800 communities spread across Benue, Plateau Kogi, Kwara, Kebbi, and Niger states.

The decision to include these four states into HYPPADEC was in response to President Bola Tinubu’s approval of the New Electricity Act. With the inclusion of Kaduna, Nasarawa, Taraba, and Gombe states, HYPPADEC now has a total of ten members. These ten members represent over 1,800 communities located in Benue, Plateau, Kogi, Kwara, Kebbi, Niger, and the newly added states.
