The Government of Imo State has begun plans to improve power supply by reactivating power plants in the state. 
The Special Assistant to the governor on Power and Energy, Mr Sam Chuks Nwaire, led a team of engineers from the Niger Delta Power Holding Company, on Thursday, to the sites of the power stations. 
The power stations visited are the Ihiala 2 x 60MVA transformers, which are already fully installed, but waiting for line connection from Alaoji – Owerri – Ihiala – Onitsha 330kv line. And  330KV line from Ihiala to Orlu Station , where  2 × 60MVA Transformers have  also been  fully installed and ready to transmit.
Both power plants were facilitated by Gov Hope Uzodimma, when he represented Imo West at the senate. 
The team also showed the third Station at Nnewi 330kv line running to Isiekenesi and Okigwe with a 2x60MVA transformers each.
The governor’s aide said that the plants should be up and running, so as to provide adequate power supply to Imo state and neighbouring states. 
Nwaire who assured that work would commence on the sites, said the state’s power supply will experience a boost upon the reactivation of the power plants. 
He said: “We are here to have first hand assessment of the power plants. We are not happy with the conditions of the power plants. We will send our report to the governor and I can assure Imo people that power supply will receive attention very soon.”
