Akwa Ibom State Government's determination to ensure the availability of power in all the communities of the state has received a boost with the granting of License to Ibom Power Plant to upgrade its capacity to generate electricity.
The state Governor Mr Udom Emmanuel dropped the hint while interacting with the members of the state House of Assembly who called on him at the Government House, Uyo.
He said the License would increase power generation in the Ibom Power Plant from one hundred and ninety one to six hundred and eighty five mega watts.
This according to the Governor would record an improvement in power supply currently enjoyed in the state.
