October 3, 2021 |

In Nigeria, Punch Newspapers reports that the Kebbi State Government signed a partnership agreement with Contec Global Energy Limited for investment into the Cassava Biofuel Ethanol project in the State as the country as a whole pushes for biofuels throughout Nigeria.

Governor of Kebbi State, Abubakar Bagudu, who is also the chairman of the Progressives Governors Forum, said, “The NNPC Renewable Energy Division as part of the vision of Mr. President has been trying to diversify actively so that the bulk of NNPC revenue will one day come from biofuel. There is need to mobilise all states of Nigeria because NNPC has been entering into agreements with more than Kebbi State on biofuel which is a very laudable development to our country.”
