The Greater Aba Development Authority (GADA) bill was approved by the Abia State House of Assembly on December 8 and is now enforceable by Governor Alex Otti.
The Governor’s first measure to be passed into law since taking office is the GADA, which aims to support investors and provide Aba with a unique developmental emphasis, among other things.
Shortly after signing the law, Otti stated that Aba would receive particular consideration as a commercial center if the GADA was established.
According to the governor, Aba integrates micro, small, and medium-sized enterprises, heavy and light manufacturing, and other commercial operations.
He praised the State House of Assembly Speaker, his fellow Assembly members, and the members of the State Executive Council on the executive bill’s passing. He also said that Aba revitalization now has the legal support it needs to bring about the necessary development.
Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice of Abia State Ikechukwu Uwanna stated that the executive bill was signed into law by the House of Assembly on December 8, 2023, after he previously presented the measure for the governor’s approval.
The newly signed law was clarified by Mr. Uche Ukeje, Director-General of the GADA, who called it a unique tool that will propel Aba’s growth.
