Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia State, has expressed joy at Aba’s prospect, the State’s commercial nerve centre, intending to enjoy 24 hours uninterrupted power supply soon following the resolution of issues that had plagued the projects led by Geometric Power.
Governor Okezie on Friday made this known in a series of tweets via his official Twitter handle.
Okezie Ikpeazu, who also thanked the Buhari-led governments “for the courage to endorse the project,” said it was “capable of repositioning our economy for the better.”
“The multifaceted impact of this on our State’s economy is not lost on us. The SME firmament of Aba will change and unleash a quantum leap in our national products score, making Nigeria genuinely ready to play in our continental trade space.
“Secondly, many artisans such as welders, tailors, fabricators, hairdressers, etc., will breathe some fresh air as they will enjoy the attendant positive impact of constant power supply on their trades leading to higher patronage that will, in turn, translate to the creation of more jobs,” the Governor said.
He further expressed optimism that the Enyimba Economic City project will also receive the necessary oxygen required for takeoff, glide in full flight and operate optimally through the power project
However, Okezie continued saying, “with this development, our country would experience real and profound success in her efforts to provide modular power through a divide and conquer strategy, which can be replicated everywhere else,” and expressed hope that the development will lead to “the end of our seemingly intractable ‘quest for power.”
Prof Barth Nnaji of Geometric Power had earlier visited Governor Okezie and briefed him on completing the independent power project in Aba, Abia State.
