Ogunfuyi Omolara while fielding questions from the Journalists who visited the Council Secretariat said in about eight months ago, owing to the activities of desecrated elements who carted away High Tension Cables that brought electricity to the entire people of the local government, the Chairman magnanimously procured and installed one hundred and twenty (120) pieces of Solar Powered Streetlight with Galvanized Pipes which each ward received (10) pieces in his aim to illuminate everywhere.
As if that is not enough, considering the result achieved through such singular efforts in the first phase, he has procured yet another five hundred (500) units of Solar lights with poles to be installed across the local government.
