The chairman of the Ifesowapo CDA, Mr Satide Adeola maintains that the Governor can help to bring light to the community by directing quick installation and energizing of the community.

“The community has met brick-walls in its several attempts to install and energise the transformer.

According to him:

“This Ipoyewa Phase 3 community has been without electricity since inception. Residents have been using generating sets and fumes have killed a couple or more of families. We have appealed to the Governor for help. It a very big project for us and the community is small, all the neighbouring communities have electricity.

On exploring other channels including the Ikeja Electric Company, he said: they have asked us to go raise funds for all the materials and get them ready before we call them, while the property belongs to them. That is the fraud in the society, you pay for everything and they still bill you with a caveat that all the transformer and materials belong to them. It is unfair,” Satide lamented. He added in order to key into the ‘Light up Lagos project’’, the community made several appeals and SOS to His Excellency but to no avail.

“We have appealed to the Governor and we will not relent, we will continue to appeal to him to do this for us. It is somehow embarrassing that some communities are still without electricity in Lagos. It is never the fault of theirs, but the lack of adequate care by leaders in our society. You have to provide everything yourself, including your own security, water, roads, power etc.’’

  1. My community don’t know how national electricity works all we know is generators. I just 9 years when the poles and wires were fixed but no electricity, even as I speak.
    In a border community called Chikanda in baruten LGA of kwara state……..the other part of the community that belongs to republic of Benin, use to laugh at us…. Because the good road, electricity , and functioning hospital that my people go to treat their selves……..i use to look at people complaining about a month or year power outage like see this ones ooo …

    But one good things is, we are doing very well, we live big and great than other places with everything. The poverty level in town is 20% over 100
