RURAL ELECTRIFICATION: Iperindo community disconnected from Ipetu-Ijesa feeder, now connected to Ilesa grid to enjoy steady power supply after years of erratic supply

The power supply challenge which the Iperindo and other communities of Atakumosa East Local Government have  being facing for some time has finally been addressed.


For the past five years electricity supply in the area had been erratic without any concrete solution from the Ibadan Electricity Distribution Company (IBEDC) until the Local Government administration under Hon. Femi Kujembola swung into action sometimes in the year 2018 when he began the dysification of the electricity supply of Iperindo and other areas of the local government from Ipetu-ijesa feeder to Ilesa grid which was a shift from depending on the epileptic electricity supply from Ipetu-Ijesa to guarantee a steady and reliable supply from Ilesa.

The current Chairman of Atakumosa East Local Government, Hon. Princess Folusho Adekoya recently unveiled an 8-point agenda targeted at youth and community development.

It was not surprising that the incumbent Chairman had to forcefully drag the contractor handling the dysification project as she was unhappy with his behavior and the inexcusable extreme delays.

Over the weekend, our correspondent witnessed the disconnection of Iperindo electricity supply from the Ipetu-Ijesa feeder and joining of the lines to Ilesa grid at the Ilesa Express road, Victory Chapel junction and by tomorrow, Tuesday 2nd November, 2021, the IBEDC is expected to energize same as regular supply of is expected in Iperindo, Ikoromaja, Owasere, Idado-ijesa, Ipole-ijesa, Ilaye-Ijesa, Ise-Ijesa, Odo-Ijesa, Ile Isegun, Aasa-ijesa of Atakumosa East Local Government.
