Abia State Governor, Alex Otti, has revealed that discussions are underway with a Chinese company to launch a groundbreaking light rail construction initiative spanning the entire state. This significant announcement was made during an interview on the Thursday edition of “Politics Today” on Channels Television, held on February 29, 2024.

Governor Otti disclosed this ambitious plan in response to a question from the program’s anchor regarding the fulfillment of one of his key campaign promises to undertake the construction of a light rail system if elected governor of Abia State in the recent gubernatorial elections.

“We are in talks with a Chinese company, and the discussions are progressing positively. It won’t be easy, but it will be accomplished. This is not a project to be started and completed overnight,” Otti stated.

Further elaborating, Governor Otti explained that the designs for the light rail project are currently being developed. After the design phase is completed, attention will shift towards addressing the project’s commercial aspects. He reassured that the light rail project in Abia State will indeed materialize, emphasizing his commitment to its successful completion.

“The designs are underway, and we will then proceed to address commercial matters. Ultimately, we will make it happen,” he affirmed.
