Answer a)
The Akosombo Dam, also known as the Volta Dam, is a hydroelectric dam on the Volta River in southeastern Ghana in the Akosombo gorge and part of the Volta River Authority. The construction of the dam flooded part of the Volta River Basin, and led to the subsequent creation of Lake Volta. The flooding that created the Lake Volta reservoir displaced many people and had a significant impact on the local environment.[1] Lake Volta is the largest man-made lake in the world by surface area. It covers 8,502 square kilometres (3,283 sq mi), which is 3.6% of Ghana's land area. With a volume of 148 cubic kilometers, Lake Volta is the world's third largest man-made lake by volume, the largest being Lake Kariba which is located between Zimbabwe and Zambia in Southern Africa and contains 185 cubic kilometers of water.

1. Kainji Dam (Niger State)
Kainji dam is arguably the most
important dam in Nigeria and it is
situated in Niger state, Nigeria. The dam
sits across the River Niger and it was
built between 1964 and 1968 at the
cost of $209 million, a figure which is
equivalent to $2.8 billion as at 2015. In
2017, that figure should have risen
significantly.
Kainji dam is responsible for the build
up of the Kainji lake, a water reservoir.
Kainji Dam was built mainly to generate
hydroelectricity and it helps to power
virtually all major cities in Nigeria.
2. Jebba Dam (Niger State)
Jebba dam is another very important
dam in Nigeria and it is situated in Jebba
town, a town which cuts across Kwara
state and Niger State respectively. The
Jebba dam is a hydroelectric dam and it
contributes significantly to the Nigerian
National grid. Jebba dam operates by
using the great power of the River Niger
to generate copious amounts of
electricity for Nigeria.

in Niger state. It began operations in
