ABUJA—Policy analysts, on the platform of Association for Public Policy Analysis, APPA, have faulted alleged moves by the Senate to stall approval of funding for the Energising Education Programme of the Ministry of Power, Works and Housing as captured in the 2018 budget proposal.

The Programme covers a N10 billion solar project aimed at the provision of solar electricity to the 37 federal universities in the country, with a view to rejuvenating the nation’s education system through the supply of uninterrupted power.

Speaking during a protest rally in Abuja yesterday, APPA’s National President, Princewill Okorie, called on the leadership of the National Assembly to ensure that the solar electrification project get legislative approvals, stressing that in the long run, it was not only cost-effective, but also beneficial to the nation at large.
