SHOCKING! These Kwara Communities Have Been In Darkness For 100 Years
No fewer than 30 communities in Aawe District of Asa Local Government Area in Kwara State have been in darkness since their creation three decades ago.
Electricity is still a strange thing to them, according to the Head of the District, Alhaji Oba Daudu-Suleiman.
The district head who disclosed this to the News Agency of Nigeria, NAN in Aawe on Monday, described the development as unacceptable.
He said the non-provision of electricity and other infrastructural facilities like good roads in the communities had retarded the growth and development of the areas.
The district head listed some of the affected communities to include: Olowo, Atere, Elelu, Ogunbo, Yede, Ogundeji, Danbudo, Afonta, Okoolowo, Afo, Ologede, Layeri, Ajengba, Afonta and Ode Magaji, among others.
He appealed to the state government to come to the aid of the communities as a way of bringing development to the grassroots.
He said the provision of electricity in rural communities would curb rural urban migration and create employment for teeming youths in the areas.
