Long before now, Ijagun, a community within Odogbolu Local Government area of Ogun State has been in total darkness. The need for electricity supply became so pressing that they (People in the community) had to contribute their personal funds to buy a transformer and also energize it.

On Thursday, 21st of November, 2019, the leaders and entire members of the community, called on Hon. Oladipupo Adebutu to commission the transformer. While this seems to have amazed a lot of people, a topnotch leader in the community, Chief M O Taiwo explained that it was the decision of the entire community to invite Hon. Adebutu for the commissioning due to his unquantifiable input in lightening up a huge number of communities which has prompted him to donate over two hundred transformers with his personal fund, a feat that has not been achieved by any individual in the State.

“What is happening here today is like giving honour to whom honour is due. We should not be surprised. Hon. Adebutu’s legacy will still earn him more of this. We are strongly convinced that if we had called on him for transformer, he would have donated it without delay. It was just our wish to get the transformer and invite him for commissioning.

What he has done across Ogun State in the past three years in terms of electrifying communities can’t be quantified. We are even more pleased that he yielded to our call, this is a reflection of his gentlemanliness and humility”, Chief Taiwo said.

In his remark, Hon. Adebutu thanked the leaders and entire community members for the honour. In his bid to reciprocate the honour, Hon. Adebutu promised to refund money for the transformer to the community leaders. The whole community was thrown into wild jubilation on hearing this gesture which was appreciated by the Community Leaders and will be committed to building the Community town hall.
