The Light Up Agbara Project is part of the Presidential Power Initiative, spearheaded by EKEDC in collaboration with key stakeholders in the power sector, including the FGN Power Company, Niger Delta Power Holding Company, Millwater Limited, and the Transmission Company of Nigeria. This strategic partnership underscores the commitment of both public and private sectors to drive economic growth and industrial development through reliable electricity supply.

Speaking at the ceremony, Mr Dere Otubu, Chairman, Board of Directors, EKEDC, emphasized the significance of the project in addressing the energy needs of the Agbara Industrial Hub.

“The Light Up Agbara Project represents a monumental step forward in our efforts to provide stable and reliable power supply to industries and communities within our franchise area. This initiative aligns with our vision to be a leader in the power sector, leveraging innovative solutions to enhance service delivery and customer satisfaction.”

During her vote of thanks, Mrs. Rekhiat Momoh, the Acting Chief Executive Director of EKEDC, reiterated the company’s unwavering dedication to the Light Up Agbara Project. She underscored the project’s significance in driving socio-economic development and improving the quality of life for all stakeholders.

Agbara Project. This initiative underscores our commitment to driving sustainable development and ensuring reliable power supply to industrial clusters across Nigeria.”

The collaboration between EKEDC and its partners seeks to unlock new opportunities for economic growth and industrialization in the Agbara community and its environs. By ensuring uninterrupted power supply, the project aims to boost productivity, create job opportunities, and drive overall economic development.

Notably, the Light Up Agbara Project is expected to contribute to increased revenue generation through value-added tax (VAT) for the government, further demonstrating its positive impact on the economy.
