Gov. Theodore Orji of the eastern Nigerian state of Abia, on
Monday, said the proposed Umuahia Airport and a seaport would be constructed
through the

Public-Private-Partnership (PPP) initiative.

Orji made the disclosure in Umuahia while fielding questions from newsmen after
presenting the state’s 2014 Appropriation Bill to the House of Assembly.

The lawmakers had asked Orji to explain how the government intended to fund the
projects, as they were not captured in the budget estimates.

The governor said “we will source the funds from PPP.’’

He said the state government would partner with investors who indicated
interest to partner with it.

He added that the process of funding the projects would be articulated in the
memorandum of understanding to be signed between the government and the
investors.

“My intention is just to start the projects. I will not tell you that I must
complete them because they are capital intensive but the two projects are vital
to the economy of the state and I know that the incoming government will not
abandon them.

“The important thing is for me to commence them because they are important to
the state.’’

The governor hoped that the N149.6 billion appropriation would be given
accelerated passage by the legislature.
