Ugborikoko and Urhumarho communities have been
provided with 500KVA transformer each, courtesy of Mr.
Tega Onoyake, Chairman, Uvwie Local Government Area of Delta.
Inaugurating the project recently, Onoyake said that it would help to galvanise
economic development in the communities that had been without electricity supply for two years.
The chairman said that the initiative was part of his campaign promises.
“Recall that I came with the mindset of restoring the lost glory of Uvwie
and heralding a new dawn in the Local Government.
“I am happy that by the grace of the Almighty God, barely seven months in
government, we have accomplished this great feat.
” With the installation of the transformer life has been restored and
businesses will begin to boom again. The commissioning has also given me the
opportunity to reaffirm my commitment to pursuing my restoration agenda,”
Onoyake urged the communities to ensure proper maintenance of the Transformers
and promised to provide more dividends of democracy to the people.
He also promised to ensure security of lives and properties in his domain.
Mr Willy Achubu, former Uvwie Council chairman who spoke on behalf of the
Urhumarho community assured that the Transformer would be properly maintained.
He said that the Transformer was estimated at a cost of Four million Naira.
Mrs Evelyn Oboro, member representing the people of Sapele/Okpe and Uvwie
Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives
who was at the ceremony commended Onoyake for the initiative.
“The people who are here, the petty traders, the barbing saloon, tailoring
shops, people who need light to refrigerate drinks will enjoy the services of
this Transformer,” she said.
