Abia state governor, Chief Theodore Orji says his administration will continue to support investors and business owners to boost the economy of the state
Speaking at the second edition of a business summit organized by a group of business professionals, Abia Think Tank Association (ATTA) in Aba, Orji said it has been his administration’s priority to ensure that business activities continues to thrive in the state which is exemplified by his huge investment on security.
The governor who was represented by his Commissioner for Petroleum and solid minerals, Chief. Don Ubani, added that his administration has been partnering with relevant agencies to ensure that power generation and distribution which would enable manufacturers to save cost of production and also maximize profit, remain stable.
According to him, “the state government is not relenting in making the state and Aba the envy of all. I urge the participants of the summit, business owners and investors to queue into the developmental programmes of this administration.”
The Petroleum Commissioner used the opportunity to promise Aba residents that work would commence immediately on some of the roads that were already bad in the city as soon as the rainy season ends and dry season sets in.
The governor who assured that work would commence on some roads in Aba as soon as the dry season sets in, commended the ATTA for organizing the business summit, stressing that it would provide businessmen an opportunity to rub minds and proffer solutions on how to restore the lost glory of the business community.
Earlier in his address titled, “A Fresh Wave of Thinking on Aba”, ATTA’s President, Mazi Sam Ohuabunwa, said that the summit was necessitated by the association’s concern towards a robust socio-economic development of the Abia State, South East and Nigeria in general.
Ohuabunwa commended the efforts of the state government in tackling developmental challenges in the state and added that Gov. Orji’s administration has made giant efforts in a bid to bequeath concrete developmental structures throughout the state, praying that the governor hands over to competent successor who would continue with his legacy projects.
