The joy of residents of Odumade/Sholumade Phase Two Community Development Association (CDA), Macaulay, in Igbogbo/Baiyeku Local Council Development Area (LCDA) of Lagos State knew no bounds, yesterday, as they received a 300 KVA transformer to boost power supply in the area.

The donation was facilitated by the council chairman, Mr. Olusesan Daini. As at 8:00 a.m. in the morning, some of the residents were seen jubilating as they welcomed the new transformer into their community. 

While receiving the equipment, on behalf of Ikorodu community, CDA chairman, Prince Femi Adelaja, said the community cried to the council boss when there was need for an alternative transformer to complement the existing one, which became overloaded due to expansion. 

He said: “We are grateful to our council chairman, Olusesan Daini, for granting our request and illuminating our community in the new year.” 

Corroborating Adelaja’s view, traditional leader of the community, Chief Sharafadeen Tijani, seized the occasion to urge the state government to rehabilitate the only access road linking the community to several others in the LCDA. He said: ‘’Igbogbo/Baiyeku Road needs urgent attention from the state government to make life bearable for us. My only car has been grounded, while I move around on bikes due to the dilapidated nature of the road.” 

Speaking to our correspondent shortly after the donation, Daini said another 300 KVA transformer was donated, the same day, to Lajo community under the LCDA.

The council boss said the transformers were part of his electoral promises to the communities and advised the beneficiaries to protect them against vandalisation.
