Lokoja-  Kogi Government has donated a 500 KVA transformer to the state Police Command, Lokoja.

Handing over the transformer, the Commissioner for Rural Development, Alhaji Umar Mohammed, said the gesture was in response to several complaints of low voltage to the state government by the command.

He said that the transformer would also serve the Federal High Court, Sharia Court of Appeal, State High Court and the Chief Magistrates' Court that were all within the vicinity of the police command and having similar problem of low voltage.

The commissioner urged the police command and other beneficiaries to take advantage of the facility to enhance their operations and services to the people.

In addition, Mohammed said that the state government had recently donated and installed a 500 KVA transformer  at the campus of the Federal University, Lokoja  and a motorised borehole with a 250KVA generator at  the Federal Polytechnic Idah.

He said that the state government would continue to extend necessary assistance to all federal establishments in the state.

Receiving the transformer, the Police Commissioner in the state, Hilary Opara, said the new transformer would enhance police operations and uplift the productivity of officers and men of the command.

He commended Gov. Idris Wada for his timely response to request for improved power supply to the police command and the surrounding courts.
