AKK Project Part of Next Level Agenda – Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari has assured that the delivery of the 614km Ajaokuta-Kaduna-Kano (AKK) Gas Pipeline project, is part of his administration’s next level agenda for sustainable development and economic prosperity of Nigeria.

Stating this on Tuesday while flagging off construction works on the AKK project via virtual link from the State House in Abuja to two locations in Ajaokuta in Kogi State and Rigachukun, Kaduna State, Buhari said when completed the project would provide gas for generation of power and feedstock for gas-based industries, and also facilitate the revival of moribund industries and the development of new ones along transit towns in Kogi State, Abuja (FCT), Niger State, Kaduna State and Kano State.

The President noted that harnessing and commercialising the nation’s vast gas reserves was an enabler for rapid economic development and diversification of the economy, saying that this remained a cardinal objective of his administration’s drive towards ensuring a stable, sustainable and more prosperous future for the citizenry.
