Oyo Govt Installs 300kva Power Generator In Scout Camp Market

The Oyo State Government has made good on its promise to install a 300kva generator at the Scout Camp Neighborhood Business Complex Challenge to make the market more conducive for traders who are majorly farmers, to do business.

Seun Ashamu, stressed that the capacity of the generator was sufficient to power the whole market Complex.

Adebisi stated that the faulty two units of boreholes in the business complex had earlier been repaired by the Ministry, while the Ministry of Energy had also resolved the outstanding amount owed Ibadan Electricity Distribution Company (IBEDC), which led to the reconnection of the market to the national grid.

The Commissioner said the present administration has met all the requests presented to it by the traders and as such, enjoined traders selling by the road side along Challenge, Molete and Mobil axis to return to the Scout Camp Neighborhood Business Complex in order reciprocate the good gesture of the State government.

In his remark, the Commissioner for Energy, Barr. Seun Ashamu, disclosed that the Governor instructed that his Ministry should work alongside the Ministry of Trade, Industry, Investment and Cooperatives ad well as the Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources to make the market condusive for commercial activities.

Ashamu assured the traders that the street light within the complex would be made functional within the next one week to enhance trading activities and security in the complex.
