The Federal Government has approved funds for the establishment of a limestone granule factory in Ebonyi State.
Governor David Umahi disclosed this in a statement issued in Abakaliki on Friday by his Special Assistant on Media, Chooks Oko.
Umahi said the factory, located at Okpoto in Ishielu Local Area, had arrangements for constant electric power supply in the area and neighbouring communities to Ebonyi.
“Let me announce to the Ishielu people that, before the next two weeks, you will have constant power supply along those corridors, from Okpoto to Isu, to Onicha communities.
“We have 60 brand new MVA produced by the Niger Delta Power Holding. The Federal Government has mobilised contractors to start building the factory for limestone granules in Okpoto.
“Mr. President has also approved money for the contractors to take that light from Okpoto through the corridors to Isu, Onicha,” he explained.
