By Olayinka Ajayi

All Progressives Congress (APC) senatorial candidate for Ogun East, Prince Dapo Abiodun, has paid N25 million being the first tranche of the N50 million needed to provide power supply to Ogun Waterside communities.

He presented the cheque to the Awujale and paramount ruler of Ijebuland, Oba Sikiru Adetona, who handed it over to the Corporate Affairs Manager of IBEDC, the power distribution company in charge of the state, Mrs. Bolanle Onagoruwa..

The people of Ogun Waterside local government had been in darkness for over two years due to poor connection, bad cables and faulty equipment.

Abiodun had, at the commencement of his political campaign, asked the people in different towns and communities in the district to prioritise their challenges. It was then he discovered that communities in the Ogun Waterside have been suffering from total power outage for over two years.

After talks with the power company, the APC chieftain offered to assist the firm with N50m to enable it restore power supply to the affected communities.
