Ogun State Government in collaboration with the World Bank has reconnected Larufi community in Remo North Local Government Area of the state to the national grid after about 20 years blackout. 

The community was provided with a 500KVA transformer through the State Community and Social Development Agency, CSDA, saddled with the responsibility of for implementing various World Bank assisted rural development projects in the state. 

Speaking at the palace of the traditional ruler in charge of the community, the Alaye Ode of Ode-Remo, Oba Amidu Osho, head of the CSDA team, Mr. Tunde Falola commended the members of the Community Project Management Committee for executing quality projects and advised them to pay more attention to monitoring and maintenance of the facilities. 

Also, the Secretary of the Community Project Management Committee, Mr. Adeoye Adefarasin, said the committee had also embarked on the construction of access reinforced concrete culverts and grading of roads in the area in the bid to boost the socio-economic status of the community. 

Addressing the team, the Alaye Ode of Ode Remo, Oba Amidu Osho explained that the community had suffered great neglect and lack of basic necessities such as electrification and motorable roads for so long to the extent that they refused to believe that the government would fulfill the promise of providing the transformer. 

The monarch, who expressed gratitude to the government and the development partners for changing the fortunes of the community, also maintained that the electrification project would reduce the activities of miscreants and suspected armed robbers tormenting the neighborhood.
