Candidate of the Action Alliance (AA) in the November governorship election in Kogi State, Otunba Olayinka Braimoh has restored electricity supply in seven communities in Kogi State.
The communities, Iluke, Ayegunle Gbede, Iluafon, Idoyi, Illah, Otafun and Ahara in Kabba-Bunu and Ijumu local government areas of Kogi state were reconnected to the national grid on Saturday after residents had endured living in darkness for the past 14 years.
Speaking during a visit to Iluke Community, Otunba Braimoh said decided to come to the rescue of the communities in other to give them a new lease of life.
According to him, the gesture is not politically motivated but his way of improving the living condition of the benefitting communities.
He told the community that his STAT Agenda is geared towards making life better for all in the State and solicited their support.
Chief David Eseyin, a community keader in Iluke, said the community has been in darkness in the past fourteen years until the intervention of the governorship candidate.
Also, Chief Mosunmola Adegoke, commended Otunba Braimoh for his quick intervention and prayed God to reward him.
Residents noted that the controversy as to who facilitated the restoration of power to the communities is a mere political talk because the communities have been out of power for about fourteen years and the same people have not been able to do anything for them until Olayinka Briamoh intervention came in and then, suddenly, everybody is trying to take the glory for it.
Braimoh, however, said, “We are just trying to follow the scripture which says when your right hands gives, the left shouldn’t know.”
