This is contained in a statement by Mr Nura Wakili, Head, Press and Public Affairs of the commission in Abuja.

According to the statement, the Managing Director of the commission, Alhaji Abubakar Yelwa, made the appeal when he led a delegation on a visit to the NBET.

Yelwa said NBET’s support was needed in addressing grey areas affecting remittances of revenue due to the commission and described the organisation as a critical stakeholder in the commission’s drive to deliver on its mandate.

He reiterated the commission’s readiness to work with relevant agencies to improve living standard of communities affected by operations of hydroelectric dams.
