Alex Otti, the Governor of Abia State, has stated that Aba will be self-sufficient in one or two months thanks to Geometric Power Limited’s power plant.
Otti made the announcement via his official Twitter handle on Tuesday, when the Chairman of Geometric Power Limited, Prof Bartholomew Nnaji, a former Minister of Power, and his team paid him a courtesy call.
Gov. Otti is overjoyed that Aba will soon have a steady power supply.
He noted that the State and GPL were in discussions with the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation Limited to remedy the gas supply problem.
“Right now, we are buying power from the National Grid, that is why power is not reliable yet, and so, we would like to ask our citizens of Aba to bear with us that we are getting there. We are there.
“The turbines to power the electricity plant, which were taken abroad for maintenance, have been brought back to the plant and reinstalled.
“We are now working with the NNPC to resolve the gas supply issue to the plant,” he said.
