The signing of electricity road map agreement between the Federal Government of Nigeria and German-based Siemens is all set to take place today, Nairametrics has reported.
The deal is the product of a meeting President Muhammadu Buhari held with German Chancellor, Angela Merkel on August 31, 2018.
The Global Chief Executive Officer of Siemens, Joe Kaeser, will meet with President Buhari today in Nigeria to sign a Letter of Agreement on the Nigerian Electrification Roadmap which was submitted to President Buhari last year November.
According to reports, several meetings have been held by power distribution companies, other stakeholders in the power sector and the Chief of Staff to the President, Abba Kyari. The meeting focused on the key areas where the help of the German government is needed.
