The Kebbi State Government has initiated the distribution of new transformers to various communities across the state in a bid to enhance electricity supply.

The state Governor, Nasir Idris officially launched the distribution exercise in Birnin Kebbi, promising to fulfill the desires of the people for regular power supply.

During the flag-off ceremony which held at the Rural Electricity Board (REB) premises, Governor Idris reaffirmed his commitment to utilizing the state’s resources efficiently and prioritizing the welfare of the citizens.

He assured that the purchase of transformers is just the beginning of his administration’s agenda to improve power supply in Kebbi State.

“We have now procured transformers as well as electrical appliances for the installation of the equipment. We do not want beneficiaries of the transformers to be burdened with installation costs. We have made provisions for all requirements,” Governor Idris stated.

Emphasizing the quality of the transformers acquired, Governor Idris emphasized that all the units are brand new and not refurbished. He urged the beneficiaries to safeguard the transformers after installation and prevent the theft of armoured cables.

The Special Adviser on Power and Politics, Alhaji Kabiru Sani Giant, disclosed that the 40 transformers were purchased at a cost of approximately N396 million, with additional accessories acquired at N120 million. Giant commended Governor Idris for his efforts to enhance electricity supply in Kebbi State, citing the governor’s intervention during the recent TCN fire incident that benefited not only Kebbi but also neighboring states like Sokoto and Zamfara.

Furthermore, Giant highlighted some of the infrastructural developments initiated by Governor Idris within a year in office, emphasizing the administration’s commitment to economic growth and societal development through improved power supply.
