By on May 7, 2013

The Special Adviser on Rural Development to the Osun State Governor, Mr. Kunle Ige, has said that over N3bn has been spent by the Rauf Aregbesola administration to provide electricity for rural communities in the state.

Ige disclosed this during a news conference held in Osogbo on Monday to highlight the activities of the state government.

The special adviser said the rural transformational agenda of the government had witnessed the provision of 350 boreholes in various rural communities across the three senatorial zones of the state.

Ige reiterated the commitment of the Aregbesola administration to banishing hunger, poverty and unemployment, adding that the lots of the masses had been bettered in the last 30 months when Aregbesola emerged as governor.

He maintained that the restoration of healthy living among the masses and beautification of the environment remained a cardinal point of the administration.

“Electricity is central to socio-economic development. Adequate power supply is the mainstay of thriving economies globally; this is why Nigeria must fix her electricity problem and join the league of focused nations,” Ige said.
