Varsity partners firm on solar power generation
Relief appears in sight for Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba Akoko (AAUA), Ondo State, as the heavy burden of powering the institution’s campus with generators is set to be lifted following the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between the university and Dantata Solar Limited, that would guarantee uninterrupted electricity to the institution within the next six months.
The partnership arrangement, facilitated by the Ondo State Government will serve the university community for 25 years.
The Ondo State government-facilitated initiative is one of the benefits of the Nigerian-German Energy Partnership. It is one of the moves of thevOluwarotimi Akeredolu-led administration to provide regular power supply to towns and rural communities across the state.
Speaking at the signing of the MoU, Akeredolu lauded the cooperation between Nigeria and Germany through which the university would begin to enjoy a new lease of life, having been cut off from the national grid for years.
Governor Akeredolu said the signing of the partnership agreement would spur other institutions to emulate AAUA in its drive to deliver welfare, impart knowledge and turn out quality graduates for the overall development of the nation.
The governor, however, pleaded with the German Consul General, Mr Ingo Herbert, who led the team, to further help the state government by extending the similar gesture of providing power supply to communities in the riverine areas of the state.
