 By Achike Amadi, Abakaliki 

Ebonyi State Government has sought a partnership with a Chinese firm, CAMC Engineering.  Specifically, the state government is seeking the partnership in the area of power, agriculture, mining, manufacturing and healthcare delivery. 

Making the request was Governor David Umahi, while receiving a delegation from UNIDO and other donor groups in Abakaliki on Wednesday. 

He specifically told the officials of the Chinese company led by its Director-General, Yu  Tao, that  his administration would be highly delighted if they could build a 10mw solar plant in the state. 

“We will like if we can get like 5mw to 10mw solar plant to light up the streets in our towns. This is very important to us because we need to extend business hours and check crimes in the state,” the governor said. 

While describing the investors as reliable and dependable, the governor thanked the United Nations Industrial Development Organisation for being a supportive development partner in various sectors like rice mills, ICT and provision of medical solar lamps. 

Adding that the Chinese are very prudent in management, he assured all intending investors of safety and conducive environment.
