Residents of Isara and Oba Communities expressed profound gratitude to the Ogun State Government for donating and installing a 300KVA transformer to engender growth and develop businesses in the communities.
The Remo North Council Chairman, Adedapo Odunsi expressed gratitude to the governor for his kind gesture and for having the concerns of his people in mind.
The Chairman revealed that the people of the Isara and the Oba Communities in Remo North and Obafemi-Owode Local Government, have been in serious business setbacks for over three years as a result of darkness caused by lack of power supply in the communities.
He added that the communities had been operating their businesses through generators which can only be run with fuel which is an expensive and scarce commodity.
Also speaking at the handing over of the power transformer, the Government Liaison Officer, Remo North Council, Abiola Ogundeko, described the government intervention as a very crucial one as lives and businesses have been saved consequentially.
In his words, “I am using this medium to thank Governor Dapo Abiodun for his magnanimity. This gesture would put an end to the hardship that had been inflicted on the lives, health, businesses, work and security of the community.”
In delight, the Olu of Oba/Eerin, Oba Abdul-Ganiyu Adegun Sanyaolu, praised the governor and stated that installation of the power transformer was on at the time of gathering this report.
“I thank the State Government for its generosity. As I speak with you, the engineers are on site, installing the transformer at no extra cost.
“On behalf of my people, I thank the governor for his timely response to our needs and we declare unflinching support for him at all times,” he said.
Mrs. Ife Akinsola, a frozen food dealer in the community had lamented the deplorable state of her business as she had had to spend extra on investments by buying iced blocks and fuel to power her generator, in order to keep her business running.
“I buy frozen fish, chicken and turkey in small quantities and preserve them in a cooler. There are times when some of the products would become bad due to lack of adequate power, which often resulted in great loss for me. I want to sincerely thank the governor for coming to our aid,” she stated.
Also expressing excitement was a resident who also thanked the governor for his kind heart, said several other businesses including welding, hairdressing, tailoring, to mention a few, had suffered a great deal in the area, adding that the installation of the transformer would bring the community out of darkness.
