The katsina state executive council has approved  over one point nine Billion naira for   the establishment of mini solar power grid for the government house and katsina general hospital.

The state Commissioner for information and culture, Dr Bala  Zango made the confirmation after the state  executive council meeting chaired by Governor Dikko  Radda at Government house, Katsina. 

He said the the idea is to address the challenges of power outage and reduce the cost of diesel used at the two establishments.

According to him, the mini solar grid would serve as an alternative source of energy for smooth functions of both the Government house and at the General hospital.

Zango observed that power outage had been compounding the smooth operations of the   General hospital, hence the need to have the solar powered grid for effective service delivery to the patients.

He said most of the mechine required constant power supply for safe and successful operations.

In a related development, the state executive council has approved the release of over two hundred  and seventy million naira  to match an allocation of funds from the UNDP.

The money would be used to resettle  people from the eight front line local government areas of the state that are  worse hit by banditry and other security challenges.

The Director General of the state enterprise development Agency, Hajiya Aisha Aminu Malumfashi  made this known while briefing newsmen on the outcome of the fourth regular executive council meeting of the year presided by Governor Radda.

She  maintained that the money was aimed at reviewing the lives of the victims through  trade and enterprise development. 

This, she said could be done by empowering them to have businesses of their own .

Malumfashi  said special attention would be given to women and youths as well as people with disabilities.
