President Adama Barrow has claimed that most of the priorities of the National Development Plan [NDP], and the 2017 Energy Roadmap have been successfully fulfilled.
“I am happy to observe that, so far, most of the priorities of the NDP, and the 2017 Energy Roadmap have been successfully fulfilled. This puts the energy sector on a firm footing for bigger successes. We will continue to encourage private sector participation, ” he said.
Barrow said with these reforms, he is confident that the 2025 target will be attained. He added that it’s against this background, a comprehensive Energy Master Plan development is being developed to set the pace.
The president earlier today presided over the inauguration of a 20MW power plant in Brikama, where he made these remarks in his inaugural address. The plant is expected to boost the country’s crippling energy sector.
