Ekiti Govt, TCN Sign MoU on Power Generation
Transmission Company of Nigeria, TCN, and Ekiti State Government have signed a Memorandum of Understanding, MoU, to construct another two electricity power sub-stations of 132/33 KVA in Ilupeju and Ijesa-Isu, Ekiti.
At the signing of the MoU, Ekiti State Governor, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, represented by the Deputy Governor, Otunba Bisi Egbeyemi said the step was part of measures to boost power supply, attract investors and create job opportunities.
Governor Fayemi who maintained that his administration was deeply concerned about improving infrastructural facilities to help the citizens to attain economic stability and progress in business, said no stone would be left unturned in ensuring the development of the state.
He noted that government would continue to provide an enabling environment for the Transmission Company of Nigeria and other investors to thrive effectively in the state.
Earlier, the Commissioner for Public and Infrastructure, Mr. Bamidele Faparusi had lamented that Ekiti received the lowest power supply among the comity of states in the Southwest, while some communities were not even connected to the national grid.
The team leader of the Transmission Company of Nigeria, TCN, Mr. Victor Adewumi who noted that works would commence in earnest since all agreements have been signed, said the projects would be delivered before the end of the second quarter of next year.
