Ogun State Assures Restoration of a Power Supply in Ado-Odo/Ota After Rainstorm


The Ogun State Government is coordinating with the Ibadan Electricity Distribution Company to promptly repair damaged poles cause by Sunday’s rainstorm in parts of Sango, Ado/Ota Local Government Area.

Over 30 communities, including Iyana Iyesi, Osuke Town, and Egan Road, were affected by the storm. A government team visited the affected areas on Monday to assess the damage and plan engagement with IBEDC. Special Adviser on Media Kayode Akinmade stated that the cables were not energized before the destruction, preventing potential casualties.

According to him “Our team went on a physical site inspection of the affected area on Monday to ascertain the extent of the damage and to know how to engage with the IBEDC team.”

”We are currently working with the IBEDC team led by the Regional Manager and the Technical Head for the Ogun Region. Some of the less affected feeders have been restored and energized while the clean-up of the most affected areas has already started.”

”Most of the poles on the roads have been removed while the remaining will be towns out. We are working with IBEDC to ensure there will be a full restoration of power in Sango Ota before the week runs out.”

He emphasized that the government will exert every effort within its capacity to expedite the restoration of power supply to Sango Otta.

”The government is not relenting in its effort to make sure that we restore power to Sango Otta and its environs, and we can assure the citizens that we are on top of the matter.”

“We, therefore, commiserate with those whose properties were destroyed by the fallen poles, as the government urged those living in the area to remain calm,” the statement added.
