As part of efforts geared towards ensuring that the people of Ogun East Senatorial District enjoy the dividends of democracy, the lawmaker representing Ogun East Senatorial District at the National Assembly, Senator Buruji Kashamu on Saturday 16th Dec, 2017 donated a 500KVA transformer to Egbe Community in Ijebu North Local Government Area of Ogun State to improve electricity supply in the area.
Handling over the transformer to leaders in the community, the Ogun State coordinator of Omoilu Foundation, Mr. Leke Shittu said that the transformer was meant to improve electricity supply in the community and as well, assist all the business women, men, artisans and everyone making use of electricity in the day to day running of their businesses in the community.
Shittu maintained that the primary objective of the light up Ogun East mission embarked upon by Senator Buruji in the Senatorial District was to boost power supply in the zone and to alleviate the sufferings of the people of Ogun East.
He advised them to make judicious use of the transformer by ensuring its protection and maintenance, assuring that the lawmaker would not leave any stone unturned in ensuring the continuous improvement of the community.
Speaking after receiving the document to the transformer, the family head of Egbe community, Chief Ola Sobowale expressed happiness that Senator Kashamu came to their rescue to solve their electricity problems, after many years of failed promises by past administrations to provide them with transformer that would boost power supply in the area.
He thanked the lawmaker for fulfilling the pledge he made to the community few months ago.
