Chief Adebayo Adelabu, Minister of Power, highlighted the project’s significance in generating 188 megawatts for nine local government areas (LGAs) in Abia, with excess power channeled to the national grid. He assured that the government would closely monitor Geometric Power’s performance as a potential model for nationwide power sector enhancement.

Governor Otti emphasized the IPP’s role in delivering uninterrupted power to households and businesses in Aba and neighboring LGAs, urging residents to prioritize payment of electricity bills.
