Gov Ikpeazu
Governor Okezie Ikpeazu has reiterated the need for Nigerians to take pride in and patronize locally made products as a way of boosting the local economy. 
The Governor was speaking when he received a delegation from a local company engaged in the production of electrical cables, CUTIX Plc who visited him at Government Lodge, Aba. He said if Nigerians patronize locally made products, the local manufacturers would not meet the demands of the citizens not to talk of exporting them, and stressed the need for Nigerian manufacturers to begin to blow their own trumpets and challenge themselves by constantly improving on their products. 
Governor Ikpeazu used the opportunity to inform his guests that the Enyimba Economic City when fully realized would be the only Free Trade Zone in Nigeria with uninterrupted power supply. He added that the zone would provide a manufacturing platform for people of the South East zone. He told the delegation to take advantage of the opportunity provided by the Enyimba Economic City. 
He commended the entrepreneur for his contributions to the locally made products and congratulated him for blazing the trail in  electricity cables. He assured them that his administration will partner with the company by patronizing them and giving them the opportunity to handle the electrical works in some ongoing projects.
Governor Okezie Ikpeazu made it clear that amongst the present crop of Nigerian Governors, he remains the champion of Locally Produced Goods and assured that he will continue to canvass the use of locally produced goods. 
Speaking earlier, leader of the delegation and a Director of CUTIX PLC , Sir Mathias Omego said the team was at Government Lodge to seek partnership with Abia State government in the areas of street lightning and other electrical projects. He said they are willing to partner the State assuring that their products are known for their high quality and remains the best in the country.
