The Drum Reporter investigation revealed that about N50m was spent on the project.
Speaking during a visit to Iluke Community, Otunba Braimoh he decided to come to the rescue of the communities in other to give them a new lease of life.
According to him, the gesture is not politically motivated but his way of improving the living condition of the benefitting communities.
Controversy as to who facilitated the restoration of power to the communities is a mere political talk because the communities have been out of power for about fourteen years and the same people have not been able to do anything for them until Olayinka Briamoh intervention came in and then, suddenly, everybody is trying to take the glory for it. We are just trying to follow the scripture which says when your right hands gives, the left shouldn’t know
He told the community that his STAT Agenda is geared towards making life better for all in the State and solicited their support.
A Community Leader in Iluke, Chief David Eseyin said the community has been in darkness in the past fourteen years until the intervention of the AA Governorship Candidate.
On his part, a Community Leader, Chief Mosunmola Adegoke, a commended Otunba Braimoh for his quick intervention and prayed God to reward him.
