27 March 2015, 13:15Okoro Chinedu

Lagos - The Imo State Government has commissioned a 500KVA transformer donated to the state’s Relief Market.

This would boost their declining power supply.

Chief of Staff, Government House and Commissioner for Special Duties in Imo State, Sir Jude Ejiogu, said the transformer was meant to improve electricity supply in the market and as well, assist all the market women, men, artisans and everyone making use of power supply in the daily running of their businesses.

"The present administration has touched the lives of all Imo people through the free education programme, good roads, hospitals, agriculture, and as well raised the standard of living of every market women, men and youths,” said Ejiogu.

Caretaker Chairman of Relief Market, Samuel Randy Okoro welcomed the donation.

“The transformer will boost power supply. Prior to the donation of the transformer by Imo State Government, the market was in a very thick darkness which affected our businesses and led to the closure of some prominent trades in the market,” said Okoro.
