The Governor of Abia State, Okezie Ikpeazu, has expressed joy over the progress made by the Geometric Power imbroglio which will provide uninterrupted electricity to the country.
Governor Ikpeazu said this on Friday while receiving Prof. Barth Nnaji who is the Geometric Power Managing Director and also pointed out the socio-economic impact a constant power supply can bring to the State.
He mentioned that Aba is filled with artisans in the likes of ‘welders, fabricators, tailors, 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.’

I felt a personal sense of joy & fulfilment today when Prof Barth Nnaji informed me of the progress & possible closure of the Geometric Power imbroglio!
Many thanks to God & the @NigeriaGov for the courage to endorse a project whose time came yesterday & which is 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 truly ready to play in our continental trade space. Secondly, many artisans such as welders, fabricators, tailors, 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. Our dear Enyimba Economic City project will in return receive the necessary oxygen required for taking off, glide in full flight & operate optimally.
Thirdly, with this development, our country would experience real & profound success in her efforts to provide modular power through a divide & conquer strategy, which can be replicated everywhere else. Can this mirror the end to our seemingly intractable ‘quest for power‘?
I’m optimistic that our people are ready for this new era! What great news in a pandemic year! Maybe 2020 won’t be too bad after all. At least, it will end on a cheery note!!!
