Ekiti State to Achieve Independent Power Supply
Governor Biodun Oyebanji of Ekiti State has announced that the state is set to achieve independent power supply through the completion of the 3.5MW Independent Power Plant Project in September. This initiative aims to drive economic growth in the state.
During a stakeholders’ engagement program to mark his 300 days in office, Governor Oyebanji emphasized that the Independent Power Plant project is nearing completion, with 90% of the work already done. The project is expected to provide electricity to government offices and tertiary institutions in Ado Ekiti and its surrounding areas, addressing the inconsistent power supply issues experienced in certain parts of the state.
Governor Oyebanji also highlighted other initiatives aimed at improving the state’s infrastructure, including the reconnection of various areas to the national power grid and the installation of solar lights in certain locations to enhance security.
The focus on achieving independent power supply reflects the state’s commitment to fostering economic development and improving the quality of life for its residents.
