At the launch of the 181mw Geometric Power Plant in Aba, Abia State yesterday, Vice President, Kashim Shettima reiterated President Tinubu administration’s commitment to revamping critical sectors in the South-east, saying that Nigeria would work if the region worked.

The development will accelerate power supply to industrial clusters in the region. It will be recalled that during the launch of the Light Up Nigeria Programme for the Southeast, Shettima said such projects as the power plant are significant to efforts of improving the energy sector.

The project, a collaboration between the Niger Delta Power Holding Company Limited (NDPHC) and its partners, is also targeted at revamping Nigeria’s infrastructure framework with the much-needed drive in empowering Nigerians and strengthening the economic policies of the Tinubu administration. The Vice President also flagged off the Smart Schools project of Governor Peter Mbah in Enugu and various road projects in Abia State constructed by Governor Alex Otti.

In his address, Shettima said the Light Up Nigeria Programme, an initiative of the federal government and the Niger Delta Power Holding Company (NDPHC), was an expression of President Tinubu’s determination to tackle the perennial challenge of power supply in the region. Shettima called on all stakeholders to put their hands on the deck to ensure the success and sustainability of the project.
