President Tinubu Ends 15-Year Power Outage

President Bola Tinubu, represented by Minister Abubakar Momoh, inaugurated an N8.3 billion power project in Ondo State, ending 15 years of power outage in Okitipupa.

The 132kv transmission line and substation are part of the government’s effort to develop the Niger Delta and boost the economy. Tinubu emphasized the importance of power supply for economic growth, job creation, and poverty reduction.

Dr. Samuel Ogbuku, NDDC’s Managing Director, stated that the project would benefit over 2,000 communities in Ondo South.

It aims to reconnect the region to the national grid after years without electricity, supporting local businesses and the government’s power sector efforts. Ogbuku highlighted the project’s role in stimulating economic growth, job creation, and development in Ondo State.
