Nigeria: Osun Completes Rural Electrification Projects

Osogbo — Osun state government said it has executed no fewer than 77 rural electrification projects across the state within the last two years.

Governor Rauf Aregebsola disclosed this while commissioning the 7.5MVA power injection station for Origbomeje community in Ife-North Local Government Council.

Aregebsola said another set of 27 rural electrification projects abandoned by his predecessor are currently ongoing and to be completed in the next three months.

He said this is in addition to the distribution of 35 units of transformers that have been handed out this year to various communities as required.

Aregbesola said the Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola administration before him was able to complete 48 electrification projects in its over seven years in office saying "for us, government is owned by the people; it is their institution for improving their welfare. We believe that the task of government is to transform the lives of the people for the better; by delivering social goods that have direct positive impact on their daily existence."
