Former Governor Gbenga Daniel of Ogun State has disagreed with the state government over the conditions of the mini power plants left behind by his administration in 2011.
He faulted claim by the Amosun administration that it was forced to discard the mini power plant at Oke Mosan in Abeokuta, because it was obsolete.
The state works and infrastructure commissioner, Olamilekan Adegbite, while appearing on a Rockcity FM programme: ‘Daybreak Show’ had said the Amosun administration could not retain the power plant, because it was obsolete.
The power plant, according to the commissioner, who was answering question from a caller, is based on technology of the nineteen sixties, and it is costly to maintain.
The former governor, reacting later on Rockcity FM WhatsApp group page “Rockcity 101.9 Parliament’, described the statement as incorrect, saying the power plants were newly manufactured and installed before he left office in 2011.
Daniel explained that one of the power plants was successfully commissioned before he left office in 2011, and it still functioning well.
The state government recently entered into partnership with 16 power providers to generate electricity across the state.
