The governor made the call during an interactive session with the Minister of State for Power, Mr. Goddy Agba, and members of Edo Solar Engineers and Installers in Benin City.

He said stakeholders should diversify investment in renewable energy as an alternative power solution to mitigate the inadequate power situation in the country.

According the governor: “It is high time we took renewable energy seriously, with electricity tariffs likely to go up. I believe that in terms of costing, renewable energy should now be market-competitive in terms of pricing.

“I had the privilege of going round the 192 wards of the state during my electioneering campaign and most of our communities were in darkness. I made a promise to them that we were going to bring light to them.
