The Chairman of the Senate Committee on Defence and Deputy Chairman, Senate Committee on Anti Corruption, Senator Aliyu Magatakarda Wamakko, has donated a 300 KVA transformer to the Badon Barade community, Wamakko Local Government of Sokoto State.
The 200 KVA transformer which was hitherto used there was grounded for a very long time and it was not repaired by either the state government or any of the concerned authorities, in spite of myriad of pleas and complaints by the residents of the community.
The new transformer which had since been installed and energized, was handed over to the community by the Director of Administration to Senator Wamakko, Alhaji Almustapha Abubakar Alkali, on behalf of the Senator,who represents Sokoto North Senatorial District.
Senator Wamakko said that, the gesture was his widow’s might to the community, to alleviate their suffering which was caused by the prolonged dearth of electricity .He urged the residents to jealously guard the facility from vandals, while they should use the electricity wisely and judiciously.
Responding on behalf of the benefiting community, the Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Alhaji Bello Jijji Bado, lauded Senator Wamakko for the invaluable gesture and pledged the judicious use of the transformer.
