Akpoti-Uduaghan donates N2.4m to fix light in Kogi community
After seven years in darkness, Anomi Community in Okehi Local Council of Kogi State is hopeful of electricity from the national grid in no time, as Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) senatorial candidate for Kogi Central, Natasha Akpoti-Uduaghan, has provided money required to fix their electricity.
Akpoti-Uduaghan donated the N2.4 million needed by the community to fix the electricity problem as part of her community intervention in Kogi Central.
According to some locals, the area has been in darkness for seven years, until leaders of the community approached Akpoti-Uduaghan and she accepted to help.
The money was meant to buy armoured cables and other equipment needed for the community’s electricity transformer.
The Director General, Natasha Akpoti-Uduaghan Campaign Organisation, Abdulrahman Badamasiuy, who handed the money over to the community leaders, said the PDP candidate responded swiftly when she learnt the community had been in darkness for seven years and all they needed was N2.4 million to fix the light.
“The residents could not hide their joy, as they trooped out in their numbers to celebrate the good news, and declared their unalloyed support for the candidature of Akpoti-Uduaghan and promised to vote for her overwhelmingly in the February 25 senatorial election.
“To the residents of Anomi Community of Eika Adagu, Akpoti-Uduaghan is the person to trust with their mandate after solving their biggest challenge by ending the seven years of darkness in their community,” he said.
