In a strategic move to revolutionize the power sector in Nigeria, Professor Barth Nnaji, the Chairman of Geometric Power Limited, embarked on a groundbreaking initiative to establish the 188-megawatt Geometric Power Plant in Aba, located in the Osisioma Industrial Layout of Abia State.

This visionary project is set to significantly impact Nigeria’s electricity output and socioeconomic landscape.

The journey towards realizing this ambitious endeavor traces back to Professor Nnaji’s earlier aspirations to enhance local manufacturing capabilities by producing high-quality vehicle spare parts and engines.

With meticulous planning and unwavering determination, Geometric Power Plant is poised to commence power generation in the coming months, heralding a new era of energy sufficiency and quality in the region. The plant’s infrastructure, including substations, transmission lines, and cutting-edge turbines, reflects a commitment to excellence and reliability in power generation.

“So, we pu’rchased a large swath of land for this purpose, but when my South Korean partners visited Enugu, it became obvious that the project would not take off principally because of poor electricity.While I was thinking of how to help resolve the electricity problem in Ala Igbo, Okonjo-Iweala and Wolfohnson made the request. The rest is history,” Nnaji added.

Nnaji described the journey in the words of Winston Churchill, former British prime minister, “it has since 2004 been tears, sweat, and blood.”

“I don’t want to tell the story of sweat, blood, and tears now; all I can say now is the game is worth the candle. Nothing can give as much fulfillment and satisfaction as working wholeheartedly for your people,” he added.
