The residents of Gambari, Akerebiata, Kulende and Sango communities have expressed gratitude to the All Progressives Congress candidate in the Kwara Central Senatorial race, Mallam Saliu Mustapha, over the rehabilitation of an electrification project abandoned in 2017.
It would be recalled that the communities had written to the APC chieftain in early August, requesting his assistance on the abandoned project.
They also noted that they had not been able to benefit from the project due to the existence of some damaged accessories on the 11KV network.
It was stated that the rehabilitation would cost over four million Naira, following a market survey carried out by the communities.
However, Mustapha, upon receipt of the letter, footed the bill of rehabilitation in full. Mustapha, while presenting the cheque to the representatives of the benefiting communities, said it would drastically improve the socio-economic well-being of the residents of the affected communities.
Represented by his aide, Tunji Buhari Sulyman, Mustapha also applauded the pioneer efforts of Engr. Kale Kawu on the project and promised to oversee it to completion for the benefit of all.
Reacting to Mustapha’s speedy intervention, the Chairman and Secretary of the affected communities, Alhaji Ahmed Kaduna and Alhaji Adelodun Yusuf, conveyed their gratitude to Mustapha, describing him as one of a kind in the communities.
“What we intended before was to raise the fund house to house, communities by communities. But with the Turaki’s wholesome interventions, all those plans have been suspended and work has begun in earnest,” the executives stated.
Also stating, Adelodun said upon completion, the substation will provide at least 17 hours of uninterrupted power supply. It is only God that can reward Mallam Mustapha for this gesture,” the executives stated.
