The presidential flagbearer of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Ahmed Tinubu says Aba will become a hub of exportable goods if he is elected president.
He said this on Tuesday at a campaign rally in Umuahia, capital city of Abia.
The former Lagos state governor said Aba has the potential for manufacturing of clothing, appliances, and cars on a large scale.
Tinubu also revealed his plans to strengthen the country’s digital economy and improve on the nation’s power generation and distribution.
“Your state is a centre of production and industry. Today, my hope is renewed that together we can achieve industrial activity unprecedented in our history,” he said.
“Aba market is one of the largest in West Africa. I see it becoming a major exporter of all types of manufactured goods to Asia, to North and South America, and Europe.
“I see this state humming with industrial activity such that it will become a world famous centre of activity from the manufacture of clothing to that of cars, appliances, and computers and their components.
“We will give you the tools to make your businesses as competitive and productive as any on earth.
