Nogeria’s President, Muhammadu Buhari is set for a two day visit to Kano state, where he will commission the 10 megawatts Independent hydro power project and the multi-billion naira ultra modern Cancer center.

The state commissioner for Information and Internal Affairs comrade Mohamed Garba stated this in a chat with Newsmen in Kano state.

He said the power and cancer center projects were among seven projects expected to be inaugurated in the two day presidential visit to the ancient commercial city beginning from 30th to 31st of this month.

According to him, the Tiga dam 10 megawatts power project when commissioned will improve power supplies to “cottage industries,  water projects in the state, especially the Tambrawa water treatment plant and improve security, as it will be used to lighten Street lights across the city.”

He said the Multi-billion naira ultra modern Cancer center, which is the biggest in West Africa, after inauguration by the president would improve easy access to cancer treatment at reduced cost within and outside the state including neighbouring countries.

“It will also reduce medical tourism for Nigerians who travel abroad for cancer treatments and conserve foreign exchange for the country,” he said.
