…Donates two to Irolu, Ilishan
The Chairman, House Committee on Rural Development, Hon (Dr) Oladipupo Adebutu, on Monday, April 30, 2019, commissioned a fully electrified 500KVA transformer he donated to the residents of Jalugba Community in Iperu Remo, Ikenne Local Government, Ogun State, as part of his constituency responsibilities.
The federal lawmaker also donated transformers to Ilishan and Irolu Remo respectively to boost electricity supply which would aid commercial and domestic activities in the affected localities.
Hon Ladi in his remarks, said that he felt moved by the plight of the people who had been in darkness for some period hence his decision to intervene and ensure they had access to electricity.
“Electricity is very germane to the development of our nation. Without it, the economy moves at a snail pace and life becomes cumbersome. I, therefore, consider it my duty to give hope to the people and make life more meaningful within my God given ability”, he said.
The Irolu Community leader, Pa Duro Otesanya and Onirolu of Irolu, HRM Oba Sikiru Adeyiga, represented by the Evangelist Josiah Idowu, expressed gratitude to Adebutu for his gesture. Pa Otesanya, in particular, praised the Ogun State PDP 2019 gubernatorial hopeful for fulfilling the pledge he made to the beneficiary communities as his record of fulfilling promises remained exemplary and impressive. “Ladi is not like every other politician that makes empty promises. When Ladi tells you he will do something, he will do it“, he said.
Meanwhile, scores of All Progressive Congress members led by the former Vice Chairman, Ikenne Local Government, Revd Sina Adeniyi, decamped formally to PDP and were received by the Ogun State PDP Chairman, Hon Sikirulah Ogundele.
