Four West-African countries, Niger, Togo, Benin and Burkina Faso have collaborated in a bid to buy the unutilised power produced in Nigeria.
Chairman of the Executive Board of the West African Power Pool, Sule Abdulaziz revealed this on Wednesday at the WAPP meeting in Abuja.
Abdulaziz is also the acting Managing Director of the Transmission Company of Nigeria.
He said the four countries were collaborating to make the power purchase from Nigeria through the Northcore Power Transmission Line currently being built.
Abdulaziz said, “The power we will be selling is the power that is not needed in Nigeria.
“The electricity generators that are going to supply power to this transmission line are going to generate that power specifically for this project. So, it is unutilised power.”
