United Nigeria Airlines Moves To Construct MRO In Enugu

Listen to article

Prof. Obiora Okonkwo who is the Chairman of United Nigeria Airlines, has reiterated the commitment of the airline to build a maintenance, repairs, and overhaul (MRO) infrastructure in Enugu State once it gets the approval of the state government.

Prof. Okonkwo who made this known at a business meeting with the Enugu state governor, Peter Mbah, at the Government House, recently, reiterated that it has always been the desire of the airline to stamp its presence in the state by building an MRO and strategic head office in the state, including expanding its presence in Enugu with befitting staff quarters as soon as the state government gives a nod to its request for land.

Responding, Governor Mbah, pledged the support of the state government towards achieving its visions in the state. He said the airline’s desire to build the infrastructure aligns with the business orientation of his government. He explained that the state government is currently sanitising the business environment in the state to attract investors.

In another report, Aba Power Ltd, a subsidiary of Geometric Power, will this weekend commence supplying power from one of its three turbines to consumers in the Aba Ring-fenced Area this weekend, two weeks ahead of the take-off date originally scheduled.

The company had scheduled supplies to commercial customers 13 days after commissioning, but, according to sources, its Chairman, Professor Bart Nnaji, who is a former Minister of Power, has directed the utility’s engineers to provide “power to the people without fail this weekend”.

The Eastern Updates reports that Geometric Power 188 Megawatt thermal plant and the Aba Power company which will distribute electricity to nine of the 17 local government areas in Abia State were commissioned last Monday by Vice President Kassim Shettima on behalf of President Bola Tinubu in the Osisioma Industrial Layout in Aba, Abia, State, 24 hours after the first turbine was turned on.
