Ondo state governor, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu on Saturday, 6th April 2019, inaugurated the 85kw Igbatoro Onigari solar mini-grid power project in Akure North.

He also launched the pilot of a scalable 45kw cabin-type mini-grid power project in Gbagira town in Ilaje local government area of Ondo State.

Represented by the Special Adviser to the Governor of Ondo State on Public Utilities, Tunji Light Ariyomo, the governor hailed the duo of Foundation for Partnership Initiatives in the Niger-Delta (PIND) and A4 and T Power Solutions for the success of the Gbagira project.

Ariyomo also revealed that another development partner, Community Energy Social Enterprise has recently completed about 85kw solar plant in Akure North local government area to be completed soon.

The Special Adviser said the Gbagira power plant now brings to five the number of successfully completed community power interventions by the Akeredolu-led government in the past two years.

He explained that “the Ondo State government just last year provided off-grid solar intervention in Ebute-Ipare, Aboto and Igbobini towns through another private firm, Messrs R. R. Reynolds. Today, we are delighted that PIND and A4 and T Solutions have continued this serious business of providing quality 24 /7 electricity for our people using alternative technology.”

According to him, there are other ongoing power projects in other parts of the state including the state capital city, Akure.

He said: “Another private firm is building an independent power plant (IPP) that will service government-owned establishments and government-owned residential estates in Akure while another company is building an IPP around Igbokoda to service the community and adjoining areas as well as the university campus in Igodan Lisa.”

Commending the people of the state for their cooperation and support for the Akeredolu-led administration, the special adviser appealed to the people of the host communities to jealously guard the facilities.

He said, “We wish to appeal to the people to support all these initiatives by ensuring the protection of the facilities.”

The governor’s aide, however, implored the beneficiaries of the power projects to ensure prompt and regular payment of their bills.

He said “We, therefore, appeal to the people to ensure prompt payment of their energy bills. It is only by so doing that the respective private companies can recoup their investments and be able to remain in business,” Ariyomo says.

The Olugbo of Ugbo Kingdom Oba Fredrick Akinruntan commended Akeredolu on the giant stride, saying the various projects being executed in the Southern senatorial district are laudable.

He pledged the continuous support of the people for the administration.
The monarch said with the advent of the IPP in the community, the socio-economic nerves of the community would experience meteoric development.
