The Chairman of Ede North Area Council of Osun State, Hon Mukaila Uthman, has donated 500KVA transformer to Awere community in Owode Ede.
He made the donation yesterday at the local government secretariat, Owode Ede.
Uthman said the gesture was to complement Governor Rauf Aregbesola’s efforts in transforming indigent people’s lives.
The Council boss expressed confidence in the fact that the newly procured transformer would boost the socio-economic activities of the Council particularly the benefitting area.
“This is a dream that comes true for the People of Awere community after witnessed many years of darkness in the community.
” I was motivated by the people’s plight. They have been left in darkness for years.
“I have made a promise to the community that I will do everything within my power to improve standard of living and this is a tip of the iceberg”, he stressed.
Commending Governor Aregbesola for his initiative at bringing government closer to the people particularly at the grassroots, the Council boss said “we were able to achieve this historical achievement because we have the required support from the man of the people and the architect of new Osun, Ogbeni Aregbesola.”
He therefore promised more dividends of democracy to the people of the council.
Speaking, one of residents of the benefitting community, Mrs. Fatimah Akingbolu, commended the Chairman’s good gestures for rescuing them from the protracted blackout.
“I pray God to continue to bless our chairman and as well guide and guard the governor of the state for giving us this young man as chairman who has been performing excellently well since assumption of office”, Akingbolu stressed.
Also Mr. Sunday Odebunmi lauded the chairman’s kind gestures for being sensitive to their plights, saying hitherto, the community has been in total blackout.
