Abia State Governor Proposes Statewide Light Rail Project Following Power Generation Milestone

Abia State Governor, Alex Otti, has unveiled an ambitious plan to revolutionize transportation infrastructure with the proposal of a groundbreaking light rail construction project spanning the entirety of the state.

This significant announcement comes hot on the heels following the inauguration of the 181-megawatt Geometric Power plant in Aba, the bustling commercial hub of Abia State.

Governor Otti disclosed his administration’s ongoing discussions with a prominent Chinese company to materialize the ambitious light rail project, demonstrating his unwavering commitment to fulfilling key campaign promises.

Governor Otti further expounded on the progress of the project, emphasizing that while challenges may arise, his administration is resolute in its determination to see the project through to fruition.

“Currently, the designs for the light rail project are in the process of being developed. We will move from there to address commercial issues, and at the end of the day, we will do it.”

The proposed light rail project is poised to usher in a new era of economic development and connectivity for Abia State, which has long grappled with infrastructural deficits under previous administrations.
