It seems the people of Ijebu-Ife community in Ijebu East, local government of Ogun state are not happy with the state government for alleged neglect in the last four years.
The Indigenes rejected the new transformer that the government gave to the community last week. The distribution transformer is sent to the community after years of pleading. Villagers came out in droves when the truck carrying the transformer arrived at its destination.
According to them, they have not enjoyed the dividend of democracy from the Dapo Abiodun led administration since he assumed office in 2019, stressing that their community has been thrown into darkness for a period of four years without any succour coming from the state government.
The indigenes had resigned to their fate until Ladi Adebutu, the Peoples Democratic Party governorship candidate in the state came to their rescue and donated a transformer to the town. The community questioned why their request was granted just a few weeks to election despite being in need of help for four years.
They emphasized that since Adebutu had given them one transformer, the newly brought one by the state government was of no use to them again.
