Gov. Chukwuma Soludo has promised to address the challenges of electricity supply in Anambra by replicating the Geometric Power project feat of Abia in the state.

Soludo noted that while it took 20 years to bring the Geometric Power Project in Abia to fruition, Anambra State would achieve the feat in a shorter time range.

The Anambra State Governor spoke while presenting the scorecard of his administration’s two- years in office in Awka, the Anambra State capital on Sunday.

He commended Prof. Barth Nnaji, the brain behind the Geometric Power Plant for his innovation, as he revealed that his administration had studied the power plant process and set up a team to work out the Anambra version.

He said his government was struggling to do more with less as revenue available to the state had reduced significantly by over 25 per cent short of previous allocation on one hand and heavy inflation on the other.

According to him, “if you are to line up Anambra people and share the allocation coming to the state among them, it will amount to N2,800 per person a month and that is what we are using to do these things.”

Soludo said he was conscious of the prevailing hard times and as such running what he described as the most austere government such that he was not earning salary from the state and his wife had no official vehicle.

He said he was committed to putting money in the hands of the poor by providing free quality public education, free delivery services and other social services.

He said going forward, he would deepen governance delivery in security, technology innovation and digital economy, education and human capital

Earlier, Chief Emeka Anyaoku, former Secretary General of Commonwealth, said the last two two years had seen extraordinary achievement in Anambra.
