A team of top officials from Azura Power led by the Managing Director, Mr. David Ladipo, paid a courtesy visit to the APC Gubernatorial candidate in the forthcoming Edo Elections 2016, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, in Benin on Tuesday.
In describing the unique qualities of Mr. Obaseki, the Azura Power boss said, “The ebullience, the camaraderie, the spontaneous laughter, the infectious joy and enthusiasm, the arm around one’s shoulders, the mischievous sense of humour – that’s Godwin’s irresistible side. The perspicacity (one eyebrow slightly raised), the strategic vision, the commercial savvy, the street smarts, the tactical intelligence, the fierce tenacity – that’s the transformative power of Mr. Obaseki. The gentleness, the kindness, the instinctive empathy – that’s the solid, lion-hearted, core of Godwin Obaseki.”
The Azura-Edo Independent Power Project (IPP), a 450MW Open Cycle Gas Turbine power stateion, is the first project to be intiated by Azura Power. It is part of a 2,000MW IPP facility being developed near Benin City in Edo State, Nigeria. When fully on stream, it will go a long way in addressing the power problems in Edo State, which is an intrinsic part of the Godwin Obaseki development agenda for Edo State.
