In a bid to shore up electricity supply in Ekiti State, Governor Kayode Fayemi, has demanded the construction of 330 KV substation from the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN).

Fayemi regretted that epileptic power supply to Ekiti was affecting economic growth, by having adverse effects on small and medium scale enterprises.

Speaking at a meeting with the management of TCN on Thursday , Fayemi represented by the Commissioner for Public Utilities, Engr. Bamidele Faparusi said Ekiti now has a friendly government that is willing to collaborate  with relevant agencies to bring development to the state .

Fayemi expressed  displeasure at the rate at which Ekiti was left behind in national developmental projects, while its neighbouring states like Kogi, Osun and Ondo are benefiting.

 Fayemi said: “When we resumed office and looked at the archives, we noticed that there was a lot of communications between TCN and Ekiti state government between 2014  and 2015 which was supposed to translate to the construction of the 330KV sub-station in the state, but that communication stopped in October 2015.

The Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of TCN, Mr. Usman Gur Muhammed said Ekiti state is very close to his heart as they have already discussed the issue of bringing a 330 KV to the state before the visit.

He assured that TCN will expedite action to see that Ekiti state has its 330 KV substation.
