The Chairmanship Aspirant of Odogbolu Local Government in the forthcoming election Dr. Babatunde Diya has commended Governor Prince Dapo Abiodun's effort in improving power supplies in the state.

Babatunde Diya is the only aspirant with the YELLOW INITIATIVE Objectives, which are in line with the 5 point implementation pillars of H.E Prince Dapo Abiodun MFRs #ISEYA mantra.

According to His Excellency Prince Dr Dapo Abiodun mfr, there is no doubt that a major national challenge to both industrial growth and domestic wellbeing is availability of regular power supply. In our usual deliberate approach, we have taken a number of strategic steps to significantly improve power supply in the State, which include:
• Establishment, for the first time in the state, a Power and Energy Board;
• Commencement of Power Audit to 
dimension the power requirements in the 
state with a view to determining the needs and improved provision of power supply in phases.
• The output from the Power Audit will serve as input into the Light Up Ogun Project, aimed at improving power supply to critical locations and sectors in the State;
• Procurement and Installation of 
Transformers to some communities across the State through the Local Government Transition Committees.

While taking on BUREAU OF ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING SERVICES in Ogun State, He said, The Agency was established to execute all electrical engineering projects in the State and to maintain and operate effectively, all State electrical projects and Services with the following functions: 
• Construct and maintain street lighting 
projects for government buildings and 
associated infrastructure.
