Abia State Governor, Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu has concluded a strategic one day meeting in Cairo, the Egyptian capital with a view to giving a major boost to his plans to push the agenda of industrialization in Abia State.

The Governor held key talks with the management of the Africa Import Export Bank ( The Afrexim bank) at their headquarters in Cairo with a view to solidifying Abia industrialization plans.




The meeting involved two key investors in Abia State – Prof Barth Nnaji of Geometric Power Ltd, promoters of the Aba Independent Power Project and Mr. Darl Uzu of Crown Realties Ltd, promoters of the Aba Free Trade Zone and Industrial Park project.

These two projects are designed to turn around the economic fortunes of Aba by respectively providing steady and reliable power supply and an industrial park complete with all key amenities for the promotion of business.

The AFREXIM bank is interested in being part of these two projects by providing financing to support the projects.




AFREXIM bank President, Nigeria’s Dr. Okey Orama stated that these two projects fall within the core mandates of the international financial institution and gave an assurance that the bank will play leading roles in the realization of these two projects.
