“The projects are at various stages, with the power station at a 70 percent completion stage. The collaboration between the Imo State Government and NDPHC aims to enhance electricity supply and energise homes and businesses in Imo State through the completion of the Egbema Power Station and associated transmission infrastructure,” a statement by Adelabu’s spokesperson, Bolaji Tunji, said on Sunday.
