Residents of Okenisa Community in Ijebu-Jesa on Friday 17 September, 2021 trooped out enmasse as they heaved a sigh of relief at the hope of getting electricity again after the community had been thrown into darkness for about seven weeks due to faulty transformer.

A philanthropist, Apostle John Oluwole donated the brand new 500kva ABB transformer to the community after learning that the power outage that resulted from the faulty transformer also affected the palace of the Elegboro of Ijebu-Jesa.

The multimedia guru who was represented by his Personal Assistant who came to deliver the message noted that he could not wait any longer after been told that the palace had been in darkness for weeks.

He added that this gesture is part of his own Corporate Social Responsibility to the community which accepted him and his corporation to do business without a hitch.

Responding on behalf of the youths of the community, Mr Oluwole Ejalonibu appreciated the donor for such a worthy gesture. This he noted has proved Apostle Oluwole as a peace loving and responsible person. He then prayed for God’s continual blessings on him.

The Elegboro of Ijebu-Jesa, HRM Oba (Engr.) Moses Oluwafemi Agunsoye who was away on official state assignment sent his appreciation through his Personal Assistant, Mr Sunday Ademola Ojelabi. The monarch eulogizes the donor for this selfless giving at a time like this and given the nation’s economic situation.

The new 500kva transformer will replace the old one which was a 300kva in size and very old too. It is located by the water reservoir area in Okenisa quarters of Ijebu-Jesa.

Update and Solicit for Funds

Okenisa quarter, humbly solicit for help from you.
Over 4 months now the entire Okenisa quarter of Egboroland has no electricity light due to faulty of supply Transformer located at Okenisa central at Reservoir junction.

We have been able to secure a 500 kva/33kva Transformer cost about 6 million from a philanthropist, Apostle John Oluwole, it was faulty due to lack of feeder pillar and good cables.

The breakdown of the materials to complete this project are as follows:

  1. 500mm cable that brings current to the Transformer 10m x 3 = 30m x 25000 per meter = ₦750,000
  2. 150mm 4core that take current out from feeder to pole for street. 20m x 32000 per meter = ₦640,000
  3. Feeder pillar  ₦200,000
    Total = ₦1,590,000.

We can put an end to darkness at Okenisa by partnering with them today. We are hoping to raise 2 million naira ($4000) ensuring a standard installation of the transformer.

Thanks for considering joining others in the movement to end darkness in the quarter of the town. Our own expectations will surely be covered.

Please consider a gift of any amount as our people really need your help. The breakdown of the expenses was given earlier and if by any reason you want it spelled out again feel free to ask.
