Fake News of an Explosion at Zungeru Hydro Power Plant
The fake news concerning an explosion at the Zungeru Hydropower Plant with resulting casualties published in newspapers on July 1, 2024, and circulated on social media has been brought to our attention.

We wish to express our strong objection to this false and mischievous report categorically stating that no such incident occurred. This report is not only false but also highly irresponsible and insensitive, given the pervasive nature of insecurity issues in Nigeria.

The implications of such a misleading report are severe and far-reaching creating unnecessary panic among our investors, partners, staff, and their families. This can potentially destabilize the confidence and trust that we have painstakingly built over the years.

The Board and Management of the Zungeru Hydro Power Plant seeks to reassure the public that the Zungeru Hydropower Plant is intact and continues to power Nigerian homes and businesses after successfully concluding a 15-day test run which remarkably boosted power supply tothe grid.
