Residents of Aba, Abia State, are rejoicing over 48 consecutive hours of uninterrupted power supply, a milestone achieved after the activation of the Geometric Power Plant.

Since the initiation of one of the four turbines at the facility on Sunday, February 25, 2024, specific areas in Aba have been experiencing continuous access to electricity.

Chude, sharing a video of a resident celebrating the constant electricity, wrote, “Aba residents now enjoy 24/7 electricity. Aba is currently the most thriving city for living and investing in Nigeria. Governance is not rocket science.”

In the video, a lady can be heard saying in both English and Igbo, “Light choke, Aba to the world. How many days now? See as A.C everywhere just dey chill.”

The Geometric Power Plant in Aba was officially launched by President Bola Tinubu on Monday, marking the culmination of a project initiated 20 years ago by former Minister of Power, Barth Nnaji.

Governor Alex Otti of Abia State attributed the success of the project to the power of vision, emphasizing that the power project has opened up Aba to both national and international business opportunities.
