In keeping faith alive, the proposed power line by the Shared Prosperity administration of His Excellency the Distinguished Senator Hope Uzodimma in order to boast the energy supply to the state is becoming a thing of reality.
The Imo State Government under Gov. Hope Uzodimma has just concluded preparation of the construction of 330KV Power Line Alaoji/Egbu/ Ihiala/Onitsha Power line.
The AFDB,TCN, NEMSA, and Imo State Government Engineers, were on site from 20th and 21st January 2021 for the final inspection to ensure the commencement of the project goes unhindered.
These high powered Engineers from Abuja were taken to Abia state where some identified challenges on the line where reviewed and decisions taken on solution.
All necessary procedural requirements have been considered and put in place including compensatory payment to owners of houses under the power line that have been marked for demolition. This project, upon completion, would boost the energy supply to the entire Imo State with a direct positive impact on economic growth.
The Power line is expected to move from Alaoji to Egbu, from Egbu to Ihiala and thence to Onitsha. This is but a coordinated way of ensuring that the issue of epileptic power supply becomes a thing of the past in Imo state in particular and southeast in general.
By this recent development, it has allayed the fears of Imolites about power supply and this is another step of accomplishment of the shared prosperity government of Gov. Hope Uzodimma on power supply.
Comr Sam Nwaire (SA power and Energy) to the Governor giving his remark during the inspection stated that Imolites and business owners can now have a sigh of relief as their businesses will experience a high rate of turnover as their gains won’t be spent on fuel and Diesel purchases.
This is another giant stride from the Shared Prosperity administration of His Excellency the Distinguished Senator Hope Uzodimma in his project of remodeling the state.
