The Ogun State government has assured residents of a reliable and affordable regular power supply in the three Senatorial Districts, in fulfilment of the present administration’s Light-up project.

          The Senior Special Assistant (SSA) to the Governor on Energy, Mr. Oluwafemi Omisanjo, made this known at Lisabi Gas Plant, Onijanganjangan in Abeokuta, during visits to major power generation stations, disclosing that plans were underway for constitutional amendments on electricity generation, thereby creating the state-owned electricity, to ensure reliable electricity within the next two years.
           "We are working on our electricity policy and Electricity Law; this is the biggest pointer to why government intends to power the whole area in the state. Presently, we are mapping out industrial clusters to see where off-grid electricity can be placed", he said.

 Responding, the Lisabi Plant Manager, Mr. Kolawole Ojo, guaranteed adequate power supply in the state, when necessary measures were put in place, as promised by the state government.

In the same vein, Mr. Omisanjo visited the site of the 7.5kva transformer, donated by the state Governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun, to the people of Owode Egba, to assess the progress of the installation and ensure proper management.

In his contribution, the Director of Rural Electrification in the Bureau, Engr. Sunday Adelakun, assured staffers of workshop and training to enlighten them more on power generation.

Appreciating the state government, the Olu of Owode Owode Egba, Oba Kolawole Sowemimo, noted that the transformer would ensure power supply and attract more investors, thereby improving the socio-economic life of the people, promising adequate security to protect the sub-station.
