Vice President, Power, Energy, Climate and Growth complex of the bank, Amadou Hott, disclosed this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria in Abidjan, on Saturday.
“In Nigeria, there are some projects we are doing.
“Presently, we have approved in Jigawa state, a grant of more than 1.5 million dollars to develop a project to build two times 100 megawatts.
