Abia state governor, Chief Theodore Orji says the Aba Mega Mall will create more investment and employment opportunities in the state.


Orji who stated this while commissioning the first phase of the Aba Mega Mall in Aba and the ground breaking of the second phase, said the project is one of the many efforts of his administration to provide sustainable infrastructure in the state.


The governor, who urged the incoming administration to sustain the project, added that Aba would remain a centre of enterprise east of the Niger.


Orji decried the inability of his predecessor to provide conducive environment for investors to invest in the state, assuring that his administration has developed projects that would stand the test of time despite the fact that I inherited nothing.


“We have developed sustainable infrastructure that will stand the test of time. We also have another mega mall nearing completion in Umuahia. There was a time a brewing company wanted to site their brewery in Abia but the then government wanted to factor its self interest in and the company left and established in Enugu. This should be a lesson to the incoming government.”


Earlier at the occasion, the Group Managing Director of Greenfield Assets Limited, Paul Obanua, expressed gratitude to the governor for providing opportunity for the company to invest in the state.


Obanua who said the Aba mega mall project has promoted his company globally, recalled that they have handled many projects across the state, but the reception and support his company has gotten from the government and the host community is exceptional.


He disclosed the mall comprise of 100 stalls which will have a cinema hall, hotel, abattoir and a dry port which has been licensed by the Comptroller General of Customs.
