…commences 33KVA electricity projects

Governor Godwin Obaseki has flagged off the rehabilitation of 33KVA overhead line installation for the transmission of electricity in the three communities of Uneah in Esan Central Local Government Area of Edo State.

The flag-off exercise by a team of engineers from the supervising agency, Edo State Electrification Agency, sparked off excitement as the residents trooped out in their numbers to applaud the Governor.

Also on ground for the exercise was Mr Oboh Okougha, a representative of Nastrademous International Ltd, the project contractor, who is incidentally a son of the community.

It will be recalled that sometime ago when Governor Obaseki visited Uneah Community, Ward One, comprising Ibore, Ugbalo and Atuagbo communities in Esan Central, promised to rehabilitate the electricity project that was vandalized over nine years ago.

In 2022, the government started with Ibore community and completed it, leaving Ugbalo and Atuagbo as phase two.

However, Uneah Community wrote a reminder letter to the Governor, telling him that Ugbalo and Atuagbo were yet to benefit from the promise he made to the three communities with regards to the rehabilitation of the electricity project.

While savouring the joy of the moment, the people of the communities acknowledged the role played by one of their sons, a politician in Edo State, Hon. Engr. Theophilus Okoh, who facilitated the electrification project through an appeal to his Excellency, Godwin Obaseki.

Another son of the community, Hon. Chris Abhulimen, who also assisted in facilitating the approval, led the supervising agency and the contractor to the site of the project to officially hand it over to them.

Hon. Abhulimen was full of thanks for the Governor for fulfilling his promise and appealed to the contractor to complete the job in record time.

Abhulimen was received by the elders of the communities who openly showed appreciation to Governor Obaseki and pledged their loyalty to him and equally prayed for him to succeed in all his endeavours.

The Councillor representing Ward One, Esan Central Local Government, Hon. Kelvin Okpeahior, equally thanked Governor Obaseki for remembering the communities.

He promised to always mobilize the people to support the Governor at all times.
