For the first time in 200 years, the people of Olooji (Ijebu East) Ogun State will be getting connected to electricity.

It was a joyous scene on 26th of Nov, 2020 at Olooji. It was the turn of the indigenes of Olooji community, Ijebu-East, Ogun state. A 100kWp Wolar Hybrid Mini-Grid designed to adequately serve this off-grid community in Ogun state was delivered to them.

With amazing landscape and welcoming indigenes, Olooji community is actually located 60Km  off the city, into the forest reserve of Ogun State.
This intervention was successfully delivered under Nigeria government's Rural Electrification Fund (REF). The Executive Director, REF, Sohiare encouraged the indigenes to optimise the impact of this intervention while using this access to clean, safe and reliable energy productively 

The MD/CEO of REA, Modi Salihijo, while sharing his remarks, explained to the community members that he strongly believes that the quality of lives will be improved and children will have better learning experiences with access to reliable electricity in Olooji community.

While thanking the Host, Ogun State Governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun for his support and encouragement, Engr. Modi Salihijo also commended the community for their cooperation with the REA team and the Mini-Grid developer Acob Lighting Technology Limited.
