There was joy in  Edumo Bunu in Kabba-Bunu Local Government Area after Kogi State Governor, Alh. Ahmed Usman Ododo donated 500 KVA Transformer to the Community.


The gesture of the Governor to reconnect the Community to the National Grid was a relief after over 6 Months of darkness.


Kogi State Security Adviser, Commander Duro Jerry Omodara (Rtd) , who presented the Transformer on behalf of  Gov. Ododo, said the donation was in line with the campaigns promise of the Governor in meeting the yearnings and aspirations of the people as and when due.

According to him, Edumo community is one of the communities benefiting from the numerous transformers that are currently being distributed around the State.

Commander Omodara further said that it is the government’s obligation to offer amenities to the people, saying Governor Ododo is doing just that to better the lives of the people.

He urged the community to continue to pray for the Governor and encourage him to achieve greater success for the people of the State.


“We must individually support the Government by providing timely and credible information to expose criminals among us, this is a vital step for a peaceful society”, he noted.


Also speaking,  a Leader in the Community, Dr. P. O Olorunfemi commended the Governor for carrying out God’s Words when He said, “Let there be light, and there was light”.


He described the response of the Governor as a welcomed development, adding that the community will continue to stand by and support his government.


Dr. Olorunfemi praised Commander Jerry Omodara’s demeanour, describing him as a genuine lover of Bunu land.


HRH Oba (Pst). Victor Ibinare, the Elea of Edumo Bunu, on behalf of the community, expressed gratitude to the Governor and prayed for God’s continuing presence and wisdom for Alhaji Ahmed Usman Ododo to fulfil his goals for the people of Kogi State.


HRH, the Elea of Edumo Bunu, also recognised and thanked Hon. Arch. Idris Salma, the House of Representatives Member representing the good people of Kabba / Bunu / Ijumu Federal Constituency, for his efforts to resuscitate the previous transformer, which was tragically beyond repair.


Recall that Commander Omodara delivered a 500 KVA transformer for the Edumo Community in 2010 through the Kabba/Bunu Local Government during the administration of Honourable Nathaniel Ojo Taiwo, which sustained the community till it failed more than six months ago.
