Member representing Anambra South Senatorial district and the front-line contender for 2025 Anambra governorship election under the All Progressives Congress (APC) platform, Senator Ifeanyi Ubah has recounted how he participated in the historical event, “Light Up Nigeria, South East initiative that took place in Enugu and Aba, respectively.

Senator Ubah disclosed that on the day of the event, Monday, February 26, 2024, that he accompanied the Vice President, His Excellency, Kashim Shettima to flag off the Light up Nigeria South East initiative in Enugu State and also joined to commission some road projects and the Aba Integrated Power Project in Abia State which is meant to provide stable power supply to the people of Aba and environs through the Geometric Power Plant in Osisioma.

“Speaking during the Abia event, which was also part of the ‘Light up Nigeria South-East Initiative’ earlier flagged off by the Vice-President Kashim Shettima in Enugu, I commended the Abia State Governor, Alex Otti for his visionary programmes. I also emphasized the importance of stable power supply in driving economic growth and development in the South East and Nigeria in general and urged all levels of government to work together to end the unstable power supply in the country.

“I further urged the people of Aba to take advantage of this opportunity and harness the power of electricity to drive innovation, create jobs, and improve their standard of living as the government is committed to ensuring that the power plant operates at full capacity and benefits them for years to come. I also called on other states in the South East region to emulate the example set by Abia State and invest in projects that will improve the lives of their citizens.

“The Aba Integrated Power Project is a significant step towards addressing the power challenges faced by the people of Aba and surrounding areas. With stable electricity supply, businesses can thrive, industries can operate efficiently, and residents can enjoy improved quality of life. The project will also help reduce the reliance on expensive and unreliable diesel generators, which have been a major source of power for many residents and businesses in the commercial city.

“In addition to providing stable electricity supply, the project will also create job opportunities for the local community and stimulate economic growth in the region. With improved access to electricity, businesses can expand their operations, attract new investments, and create more employment opportunities for the people of Aba and environs.

“These gigantic events which were attended by the Nigerian Vice-President are a testament to the commitment of the government to address the power challenges faced by Nigerians and create a conducive environment for businesses to thrive, and I am confident that the present federal government would not relent in doing Nigerians proud in the power sector, “Senator Ubah concluded.
