At an inspection visit to the three project locations, the minister expressed disappointment over the abandonment of the projects at their almost complete stage.

He pointed out the immense importance of the power projects to the people not just in terms of boost to power supply, but also, give room for expansion to cover the entire Abia senatorial district.

The Minister was accompanied on his inspection by Senator Orji Kalu to the locations of the abandoned projects, the statement read.
