Ogun community seeks government intervention over blackout
Disturbed by the pervading darkness in their area, residents of Progress Community Development Association (PCDA) in Mowe, Obafemi Owode Local Government Area of Ogun State have appealed to the governor, Mr. Dapo Abiodun to urgently assist residents in providing electricity in the area, which has been in darkness for over six years.
The residents also charged the Ofada Mokoloki Local Council Development Areas and relevant agencies to speed up infrastructural development of the community, tackle the issue of poor drainages and provide good roads.
Chairman of the CDA, Bagudu Mustapha who made the appeal on behalf of other residents expressed these concerns during the monthly CDA meeting in the area. He lamented that the people have been in serious hardship due to the absence of some of the basic needs of life, especially electricity.
According to him, several efforts have been made to get the state government and the Obafemi-Owode Local Government, Ofada-Mokoloki LCDA and Ibadan Electricity Distribution Company to come to their aid on the community electrification project, but none of the parties has redeemed their promises to light up the communities for the past six years.
“The Orunkole Phase three located in Mowe, Obafemi Owode Local Government, Ogun State is medium size residential community with over 500 buildings and settlement with no source of electricity and other basic infrastructures”, he said.
The absence of power supply in the area, he observed could make the area prone to attacks by unscrupulous elements.
