HYPPADEC To Provide 250 Housing Units To Cushion Effect Of Flood In Kwara

The Hydroelectric Power Producing Areas Development Commission (HYPPADEC) has announced plans to provide 250 housing units for those displaced by flood in riverine communities in Kwara State.

The commission said it would also  train and empower 60, 000 skilled and unskilled youths in the state within the next five years.

These  proposals were contained in HYPPADEC ‘s Medium Term Strategic Plan (HMTSP) 2022- 2027 presented at its stakeholders forum held in Ilorin.

Presenting the plan, HYPPADEC  consultant, Sam Juwl, said the 60,000 youths would be trained within the next five years to take them out of poverty.


He said while non-graduates would be trained in vocations such as tailoring, paintings among others,  graduates would be trained in advanced skills including ICT,  installation of circuit camera television (CCTV) and solar panel installations among others.

HYPPADEC ‘s managing director, Abubakar Yelwa, said the commission had got approval of its governing board to provide 250 houses to people displaced by flood from reverine communities.

He, however, decried  lack of compliance by generating  companies in all the six HYPPADEC states in the payment of their dues to the commission.

The chairman, Governing Council of HYPPADEC, Barrister Joseph  Ityav, said the essence of the meeting was to have stakeholders inputs  in the proposed  plan with a view to ensuring that its implementation was carried out according to their communities’ needs assessment.
