Following epileptic power supply to their community  occasioned by inadequate  transformers, residents of Alhaji Bashiru, Lanre Ebegbure Ajalli, Jide Rowland,  Akwa-Etiti, John Umunna and Isanlu streets in Ajao Estate, Isolo Local Council  Development Area, Lagos State South West Nigeria, have appeal to the Lagos State  Government and the authority of Power Holding Company of Nigeria (PHCN), to supply  more transformers.

The residents in a letter of request to the PHCN, Ministry of Rural Development,  their representative in the House of Representatives, Mr. Joseph Ajatta, Special  Adviser to the Governor on Works and Infrastructure and the Governor of Lagos State,  signed by Pastor A. Oludele and Uzoma I. Onwubike, the CDA chairman and secretary  respectively, said the affected streets have been serviced with one transformer for  more than 25 years.

This, according to them, has subjected them to unwarranted blackout everyday.

“The above community is hereby requesting for 500KVA transformer to boost the  existing one that has embarrassingly servicing seven streets for the past 25 years  and even the load shedding introduced by PHCN is no longer workable because of the  old age of the transformer,” the community stated in the letter, while appealing to  the authority concerned and the state government to save them from continuous  blackout.

In another development, the community’s residents association has completed  rehabilitation of a culvert at Oredola Street which serves as link to Airport Road.

Speaking on the N.3 million project, Mr. Michael Ojejinmi, a member of the project  committee, said the community decided to embark on the rehabilitation of the culvert  which collapsed during the Ikeja Cantonment bomb blast as efforts to get it  rehabilitated by the local council were futile.

Ojejinmi, however, thanked members of the community for contributing towards the  project.
