Abia Govt to build N30bn industrial cluster in Aba

Industries, Trade and Investment

Abia State government has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with a partner company to build an industrial cluster for the leather, garment and allied products producers at Amator in Obingwa Local Government Area of the state.

Speaking at the MOU signing ceremony in Aba, the Permanent Secretary in the state Ministry of Industries, Cletus Mba, said that the building of the N30 billion industrial cluster was informed by Governor Okezie Ikpeazu’s earlier plan to provide the beneficiaries with a suitable and permanent business location that would prosper their businesses and thus engender mass production of made-in-Abia/Aba products.

He said that members of the beneficiary associations would be allocated shops first before others in the cluster which will have 15, 000 shops therein.

Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Total Value Integrated Services Ltd, Dr. Chris Onyekachi Simon said that the building of the Cluster will be completed and commissioned before the end of Ikpeazu’s tenure as the state governor in 2023.
