One hundred and sixty transformers worth about N402 million are to be distributed to 300 communities by the Kogi State government.

Governor Idris Wada, launching the transformers under the state’s accelerated rural electrification scheme, said it was in fulfilment of his promise to make electricity accessible to the rural populace.

He frowned at estimated billing on electricity consumers and promised to correct the anomaly.

Wada reiterated his commitment to improve the living standard of the people and boost socio-economic activities through the provision of basic infrastructure.

He urged the people to assist government in preventing vandalism of transformers by miscreants.

The Commissioner for Rural Development, Mallam Umoru Muhammed, lauded government’s effort to link over 300 communities to the national grid.

He said the gesture would enhance industrial and socio-economic development, assuring that his ministry would not relent in the actualisation of its responsibilities.
