Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Mines, Energy and Rural Electrification Dr. Chris Vehe mentioned in his remarks, the CBSP is the first benefit of the Tina Hydro Project.
Dr. Vehe assured communities who are part of the Tina Hydro Project that the national government with its partners will ensure the progress of the project.
He adds, more benefits are coming up on the project and he urged community leaders to cooperate with the national government to move the project forward.
