Electricity can be said to be the bedrock of any development. The need to have a stable and cheap electricity has been one of the major problems that have mitigated against the the industrialisation of Nigeria . The residents of the commercial city of Aba , Abia State would be having a respite from power outage as the Ministry of Power , Fashola commissions some electrification projects in the city .
As Fashola storms Ariaria market in Aba along with Damilola Ogunbiyi (MD REA) this is to inspect and get feedbacks from consumers of the already electrified shops under the FG’s Energizing Initiatives Power Project at Ariaria market in Aba, Abia State.
Aba City also known as Enyiba has one of the most robust markets in the South Eastern region of the country. With customers coming as far as the Niger republic, Cameroon and other surrounding countries to buy product. Manufacturers and traders have complained that lack of stable electricity has hampered their ability to reach their full potentials. A situation that the ministry of works is trying to correct.
