Soon, Ekiti will have an independent power supply — Governor Oyebanji



Yesterday, the governor of Ekiti State, Biodun Oyebanji, announced that the state will be powered by the 3.5MW Independent Power Plant Project in September in order to stimulate economic growth.

This was stated by Oyebanji in Omuo-Ekiti, the capital of the Ekiti East Local Government Area, during an engagement programme with stakeholders commemorating his 300 days in office.

He noted that the 3.5MW Independent Power Plant project is 90% complete and will supply light to government offices and tertiary institutions in Ado Ekiti and the surrounding area, saying that this will rectify the erratic power supply encountered in certain areas of the state.

To improve the state tourism corridor, we are reconnecting Ikogosi, Erijiyan, and Ikogosi Resort Centre to the national grid. We need N1 billion to reconnect Ayekire, Ekiti East, and their LCDAs to the national grid after 10 years of darkness, as well as the Agriculture Processing Zone at Ikole.

“We have installed solar lights in the Atikankan neighborhood of Ado Ekiti to illuminate the area and thwart criminals who were hiding there.” This government has extended the 33KV transmission line from the Omisanjana Transmission Substation to the Baptist High School and connected the Ilawe 33KV line to Erinjiyan-Ikogosi.”
